MAN IS ACCUSED OF DAMAGING APPLE TREES

A man who allegedly ran over five apple trees with a tractor was arrested Monday, Sheriff's Deputy Kevin P. Landrigan said.

Chet W. Emel, 19, of 2158 West Creek Road was charged with five counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and one count of third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Landrigan said a tractor was driven out of the barn at Niagara Orchards, 5530 Wilson-Burt Road. It was later found with a flat front tire by employees of the company.

The damage was discovered Sunday, Landrigan said.
