A pair of people in Oswego County were arrested on Friday for stealing food deliveries that were meant for students in need.
The Oswego County Sheriff’s office says deputies had been investigating reports of meals that were left for students in need on door steps were being stolen.
Those home deliveries were taking place due to the closure of schools in mid-March.
On Friday, two people were arrested and identified by the Sheriff’s Office.
Lucas Koch and David Abbott were charged with petit larceny. They were given appearance tickets to answer the charges at a later date.
No other information about the accused was released.
Sheriff Don Hilton says it’s important for everyone to rally around those in need. “During these uncertain times communities are stepping up to help each other and our schools are delivering meals for our kids. Unfortunately some in our community choose to prey on school children who are simply waiting for their meal to eat. I am proud that our department was able to track, identify and arrest these individuals,” he said.
