On May 15, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested David M. Cass, 38, of Wirt, NY for Menacing with a Weapon 2nd Degree, Reckless Endangerment 2nd Degree, and Illegal Discharge of a Firearm.

Troopers responded to a complaint of a firearm being discharged near a residence on Pine Grove Road in the town of Wirt. Their investigation revealed Cass had fired a rifle multiple times near a neighbor’s house.

Cass was arrested and arraigned in Wirt Town Court, where he was released on his own recognizance. He is due to reappear in that court in June.
