Watertown woman accused of stalking another, police say

WATERTOWN, NY —  Tammy L. Gallaher, 48, of 26600 State Route 3, Watertown, was charged by Watertown police at 11:50 a.m. Friday, Feb. 14, at 901 Rail Dr. with third-degree stalking, a misdemeanor.

According to court documents, Ms. Gallager engaged in a “course of conduct directed at Kari N. LaClair, 43, Watertown, which placed her in reasonable fear of physical injury when she followed the victim from her place of work at 213 Factory St. after threatening to meet her in the parking of said location and cause physical harm to her. The defendant was informed to cease her course of conduct, however she did not and repeatedly drove by the victim’s house honking her horn and sending multiple text messages to a third-party continuing to threaten the victim between the dates of Feb. 10, 2020, and Feb. 13, 2020, causing the victim enough emotional stress to relocate her vehicle into a secure parking lot while at work and purchase a security system for her home.”

Ms. Gallaher was being held pending arraignment Friday afternoon in City Court.
