The LeRoy Police Department has charged two men for allegedly stealing beer from a West Main Street business Monday.

40-year Ted Kingsley, who has no permanent address, is accused of stealing “numerous” items from the store. He also was found to have two outstanding arrest warrants. Kingsley was committed to the Genesee County Jail in lieu of $1,500 bail.

52-year-old Earl Pickard is accused of stealing two 24-ounce beer cans from a store on West Main Street. He was released and ordered to appear in court at a later date.

Each man is facing one count of petit larceny. It is unknown if the alleged shoplifting incidents are related.


A Town of Alabama man who skipped out on sentencing for burglary and grand larceny charges is back in the custody of the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office.

24-year-old Benjamin Muntz of Knowlesville Road was originally arrested in Genesee County in March 2012. He was then arrested in Fayetteville, Ark., on unrelated charges and released on parole yesterday following a brief prison term. Because of the bench warrant in Genesee County, Muntz was transported back to New York where he is facing charges of criminal possession of stolen property and two felony counts of grand larceny and burglary.

Muntz also has an active bench warrant in the Town of Alabama for petit larceny and possibly an arrest warrant from Henry County, Ga., for burglary, according to the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office. He is currently in jail pending his court appearance today.
