Christmas Tree Theft in Allegany County

Two Wellsville women should probably expect coal in their Christmas stockings after beining caught red-handed stealing a Christmas tree.

Police say at around 2:30 Sunday morning the owner of a tree farm on Jones Road in the Town of Andover saw two women put the tree in their vehicle and drove away. He started following them and, at one point, the women threw the tree from their vehicle at the tree farm owner’s vehicle.

Andover’s police chief stopped them on Route 417 and, when state police arrived, they arrested 28-year-old Angilne Palmiter and 36-year-old Victoria Green. Troopers later learned that the women and 27-year-old Derek Hodgkins, also of Wellsville, stole another Christmas tree from the same business earlier in the night.

All three are charged with petit larceny. The women are also charged with reckless endangerment. They were all released with appearance tickets for Town of Andover Court.

For those who are confused:

Wellsville is in Allegany County

Allegany is in Cattaraugus County

Port Allegany is in McKean County

The Allegheny National Forest is in several counties, none of which is Allegany

Bradford is in McKean County, not Bradford County
