On September 16, 2022, the New York State Police in Lowville arrested 33-year-old David R. Nisley Jr. from Lowville, NY for Identity Theft 1st degree, a class “D” felony.

Mr. Nisley is accused of creating numerous false reservations online, using anonymous aliases, which resulted in an approximately $13,000.00 financial loss for the Tug Hill Vineyards on Mother’s Day 2022. Nisley, a former employee of Tug Hill Vineyards, admitted to investigators that he made the fake reservations because he was upset with his friend’s former employer and expressed remorse for his actions, stating he understood it was not a harmless prank.

Mr. Nisley was arraigned in Lewis County CAP court and released on his own recognizance.
