State Police in Montgomery announce the arrest of Ashlee Richards, age 33, of Walden, NY. Ms. Richards was charged with Grand Larceny Third Degree, a Class D Felony.
After a lengthy investigation, State Police BCI determined that Ms. Richards committed the felony of Grand Larceny Third Degree by false pretense where she systematically conned an unsuspecting couple from Pennsylvania. Ms. Richards pretended to be pregnant in March of 2018 and syphoned monies from the unsuspecting couple through August of 2018, to the tune of aproxmately $7,000.00 in "assorted expenses". At the end, there was no child and the pregnacy was a hoax.
Ms. Richards was arraigned in the Town of Montgomery Court by Town Justice Raynard Ozman where she was remanded to Orange County Jail in lieu of $3,500.00 cash bail or $7,500.00 bond.
