State police say bad parking led to the apprehension of an upstate New York man wanted on a probation violation.

Troopers say a state police investigator spotted 23-year-old Matthew Bergeron of Richmondville on Thursday afternoon as he tried to back a vehicle into a parking space at a truck stop in Rotterdam in Schenectady (skeh-NEHK'-ta-dee) County.

Police say Bergeron parked crookedly, straddling two spaces, then walked away from the vehicle.

The investigator knew Bergeron from previous arrests. He also knew that Bergeron was a suspect in a burglary and was wanted on outstanding warrants in neighboring Schoharie (skoh-HAYR'-ee) County.

Police say Bergeron was taken into custody without incident. He was sent to the Schoharie County jail.
