Police Find Stolen Truck Being Buried

MACEDON, N.Y., (UPI) — A father and son in upstate New York face possible charges after the son was allegedly spotted burying a stolen box truck in a sand pit, investigators said.

Macedon, N.Y., police and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office said the 26-foot-long box truck was taken last week from a Macedon business and their only leads were the name of a company, Country Construction, and the first name of a suspect, Jeff, The (Batavia, N.Y.) Daily News reported Wednesday.

The sheriff’s office said deputies using a helicopter spotted Jeffery Paul, the son of Country Construction owner David Paul, 72, using a bulldozer to bury the truck in a sand pit on a 77-acre parcel of land owned by the family.

The Pauls were taken into custody and investigators searched the property Friday and discovered the stolen truck, two stolen backhoes, a stolen backhoe that had been dismantled and a stolen car.

Sheriff’s investigator Corey Black said no charges have yet been filed against the father and son pending further investigation, but possession of stolen property charges are likely.

“We’re still trying to determine ownership of the property,” Black said. “Some of the identification numbers were removed.”
