Written By Editor on 7/10/23 | 7/10/23

On July 6, New York State Police at Oneonta arrested Reginald M. Ross, age 62 of Davenport for the class “D” felony of Criminal Mischief in the second degree and the misdemeanors of Theft of Services and Criminal Tampering in the second degree.  He was also charged with the New York State Agriculture and Markets Law of Overdriving, torturing and injuring animals; failure to provide proper sustenance. 

Troopers were dispatched to an address on Ross Road in the town of Davenport after it was discovered that Ross was stealing electricity from a residence on Charlotte Creek Road.  An investigation revealed that Ross also damaged a circuit breaker box and some electrical wires in order to steal the electricity. 

During the investigation, the Troopers also found several dogs on the Ross’ property, including one dog which had visible porcupine quills on its face and mouth and were determined to have been on the dog for several days.  Davenport Animal Services assisted on scene and the dog was removed from the property to receive proper care. 

Ross was processed at SP Oneonta.  He was arraigned and released on his own recognizance and scheduled to appear in court on July 17, 2023.
