Greenport, New York – On October 11, 2018, the New York State Police from the Livingston barracks arrested Richard A. Dick, age 43, of Chatham, New York, Petit Larceny, a class A misdemeanor.
On October 3, 2018, Troopers received a complaint that Richard Dick engaged into a verbal contract to complete mechanical work which included the replacement of two front tires, replace both front wheel bearings, replace the right front tie rod and perform an alignment on a 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser. However, Mr. Dick deprived the complainant of his financial compensation by wrongfully taking, and retaining payment in full when the services agreed upon had not been completed. Mr. Dick took possession of the complainant’s financial compensation through trickery under false pretense; purporting that all agreed upon work had been completed per the verbal contract and agreement. After a week-long investigation it was determined that not all the work was completed Mr. Dick was arrested.
Mr. Dick was arraigned before the Tow of Greenport Court where he was subsequently released on his own recognizance. Dick is scheduled to appear before the Court on October 29, 2018, at 3:00 pm.
