Tractor operator gets drugged driving charge

WARSAW — Maybe the trenchcoats gave them away.

Two 17-year-old males are facing several charges after they stole a vehicle near Buck Road and Route 20A, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies and state police were alerted 4:36 p.m. Nov. 21 to a report of two people in black trenchcoats who stole a red Subaru.

A trooper located the stolen vehicle a short time later on the south dead end section of Dick Road. A deputy then observed the two teens — who matched the description — walking on Christ Road.

After the deputy interviewed the two teens, a witness approached and said one of the two teens had tossed something into the ditch when the deputy pulled up in his patrol vehicle.

The stolen vehicle’s keys were then found in the ditch, and the two teens were taken into custody.

The teens were each charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and fifth-degree conspiracy. They were released to their parents are to appear in court at a later date.
