Three people were arrested and charged with the felony of fourth-degree grand larceny June 7 after a theft at Price Chopper in the village of Richfield Springs, state police said in a June 18 media release.
Store employees called 911 after they saw the three people take two grocery carts filled with items, leave the store without paying then load up an SUV, the release said. Employees were able to obtain a license plate, provide the description of the vehicle and of the suspects. The total cost of the items was determined to be more than $1,000.
An investigation revealed that the vehicle the trio used to leave the store was also taken without permission, troopers said. The three arrested were Kenneth R. Cravotta, 35, and Stephanie M. Goodsill, 25, both of Morris, and Candis R. Burnette, 26, of Cobleskill.
In addition to the grand larceny charge, they each were charged with the misdemeanor of unauthorized use of a vehicle. They were issued appearance tickets returnable to the Richfield Springs Village Court on July 2.
