State Police Amity - 
Troopers Spoil Grinch's Christmas Heist

On Sunday, December 2nd 2012 at 2:23 am, the Allegany County 911 Center reported a larceny of a Christmas tree from the Jones Rd in the Town of Andover.  The suspects were fleeing the scene in their vehicle and were being followed by the owner of the Tree Farm in his vehicle. At one point the suspects threw the tree from their moving vehicle at the owner. 
The vehicle was stopped on State Route 417 by Chief Rumfelt of the Andover Police Department.  NYSP Amity Troopers Tavernier and Bonerb arrived on scene and placed Angiline M. Palmiter, Age 28 of Wellsville and Victoria R. Greene, Age 36 of Wellsville under arrest for the larceny of the tree.  
While investigating the incident it was discovered that Palmiter, Greene and Derek J. Hodgkins, Age 27 of Wellsville were responsible for stealing another Christmas tree earlier in the night from the same location.  Palmiter and Greene were charged each with 2 counts of Petit Larceny and 1 count each of Reckless Endangerment 2nd for throwing the tree at the owner's vehicle. Hodgkins was charged with 1 count of Petit Larceny.  All three were issued appearance tickets made returnable to the Town of Andover Court.

Probably if they would have ask the owner he would have given them a tree. Sad Sad Sad. How many other things have they stolen??? No respect for other peoples property. Maybe they should think of getting a job and working for what they want. Nice pictures.

The one girl does have a job. She has had some financial strains as she just moved to her own place and she shares the responsibility of caring for 2 young children. She obviously made a bad choice, but that doesn't mean she's a horrible person or that she goes around stealing everything. Unless you know the person(s) involved (in any situation) you shouldn't be so quick to judge. We all are struggling with some issue in our lives. And your issues are not always the same as mine. We all need to take a step back and have all the facts and information before we throw out judgments like your disgusting; disrespectful; jerk; criminal; worthless; etc.

REAllY 9:30 am post????? What makes me mad? When people post, they made a bad choice, they are having a hard time..for God's sake can you imagine what the world would be like if everyone used these excuses??? Grow up and quit thinking the world owes you the perfect life. WORK FOR IT, OR GO WITHOUT, DON'T STEAL IT!

Agree with 11:20. Yes, she mad a bad choice. Yes, only horrible people steal christmas trees. Get these people out of my community. Please welcome them with open, loving arms into yours. Just remember to lock you door.
No presents for these three. They are automatically on the naughty list.

This is the perfect reason why every Christmas tree should carry a gun.

OMG 9:30!! If you can't afford a tree, be creative! One of the best trees I ever had as a kid was this ugly pine tree my dad cut down when he didn't have the cash to go buy a tree from the tree farm. He cut one that was in the woods. It was ugly!! But, we laughed about it and called it our Charlie Brown tree. Best tree ever. Stealing a tree is just stupid - I don't care what the excuse is.

Ridiculous! Stealing a Christmas tree? Doesn't get much more pathetic than that. I got a fake tree at a church bazaar for $3. Wasn't stolen and it was just fine for my four children and family members to enjoy. Get a life, a hobby or a part time job. If you can't afford to buy a tree, you don't need to buy presents to put under it.
