On Friday, February 9th, officers from the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office responded to Walmart in Cortlandville for a reported larceny that had taken place around 6 o’clock in the evening.
An investigation by officers determined the suspect, 27 year old Rachel L. Chace of the Town of Homer, had stolen from the store. As she was in the process of being arrested, officers found her to be in possession of a controlled substance.
Chace was charged with Petit Larceny and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th, both Misdemeanors. She was taken to Cortland County Jail for processing and later released on an appearance ticket. She is due in Cortlandville Town Court later this month.
