Major Edward J. Kennedy
Troop A Commander
Wellsville man arrested for falsely reporting a stolen vehicle
On July 29, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Larry C. Haxton III, 33, of Wellsville, NY for Falsely Reporting an Incident 3rd Degree and Providing a False Written Statement.
On July 14, 2019, Haxton reported his car had been stolen. Troopers subsequently located his vehicle, which had been involved in a one-car accident and abandoned in the village of Andover. Troopers determined through their investigation that Haxton’s vehicle had not been stolen, and that he was likely the operator at the time of the collision.
Haxton was arrested and arraigned in Wellsville Town Court and released on his own recognizance. He is due to reappear in that court later this month.
