    NY - Navjeet Singh Chawla, South Glens Falls, November 2015

    Clues surface in case of missing store owner

    South Glens Falls, New York -
    The man who abandoned a convenience store on the corner of routes 32 and 9 in South Glens Falls, leaving meat to rot inside, has left two clues to why he vanished.

    Law enforcement in New York City seized $48,000 in cash from Navjeet Singh Chawla around Nov. 5, 2015, according to court records. The cash was seized on the belief that it was the product of drug sales.

    But Chawla was not arrested, according to New York City police records. Police said that meant he was not found with any drugs on him — only the cash, which officers considered suspicious because there was so much of it.

    Law enforcement can seize cash and other possessions on the grounds that they may be the products of drug trafficking. To get them back, the owner has to prove they were legally earned or purchased.

    The case involving Chawla’s cash has not yet been resolved, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to discuss it, saying it was the office’s policy to not comment. Chawla does not have a listed attorney for the case.

    It’s not clear why Chawla, who owns a house in Waterford, was in New York City. But he left one other clue that suggests he was heading to Sacramento, California.

    On his doorstep in Waterford is an overnight-air package from Dish Network. A second package from Dish Network, mailed at the same time, was rerouted to a new address in Sacramento, California, according to UPS package tracking records.

    Other mail, including a “sorry we missed you” sticker, is also waiting at his front door in Waterford, indicating no one has been home in months. Chawla’s Toyota Sequoia, with custom plates, still sits in the driveway.

    Meanwhile, a man identifying himself as Chawla called South Glens Falls Mayor Joe Orlow on Tuesday and promised to reopen the store.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    It seems like he's back. http://poststar.com/news/local/aband...2c44823d0.html

    Navjeet Chawla is back, and he’s reopening his convenience store.

    On Monday, he and his former employees hauled out bags of rotting meat, moldy bread and expired drinks.
