ROME, N.Y. – A Rome man was arrested Friday for allegedly damaging vehicles and stealing parts, after state police found him at a traffic stop in Marcy.
State police say they had been searching for 26-year-old Richard D. Tennant Jr. for two months on multiple arrest warrants issued in Utica, Rome and Oneida.
Tennant is charged with auto stripping, criminal mischief and grand larceny for allegedly stealing catalytic converters and selling them to scrap yards.
Police say Tennant had been evading arrest until he was found as a passenger in a car pulled over in Marcy on Jan. 17.
Tennant was taken to Oneida County Centralized Arraignment Court and held on bail due to his outstanding warrant from Madison County. He is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
