State police have identified the person responsible for the larceny that took place at Beachwood State Park in the town of Sodus earlier this week.
It was originally reported that a caretaker for the property saw a Preston’s Tree & Landscape Service truck drive onto the property with an empty bed. Then, about 15 minutes later it left with a bed full of tree saplings.
As it turns out, the operator of that truck was 26-year-old Bradley Preston. He was charged with petit larceny and issued an appearance ticket for March 13th in Sodus Town Court.
Aaron Preston, who owns the landscaping company, told News 8 in Rochester that the 26-year-old had just bought a home, was not on the clock, and was doing some personal landscaping on his own property.
