NEW HARTFORD, N.Y.(WKTV)- A New Hartford man has been charged after authorities say he accepted money for a tree removal that he never performed.

According to Investigator Matthew Sica of the New Hartford Police Department, in April 2011, John W. Feketa, 45, was running a Tree and Excavation business and solicited a New Hartford resident to have thirteen trees removed from her property.

Police said the property owner paid Feketa over $3,000 for the job, but Feketa never returned to complete any of the work agreed upon.

In August 2011, an Arrest Warrant was issued for Feketa by the Town Of New Hartford Court and he was subsequently arrested on April 3, 2012 and charged with third-degree grand larceny.

He was arraigned in the Town Of New Hartford Court and sent back to the Oneida Count Jail where police said he was currently incarcerated on separate charges.

He is due back in court at a later date.

Old news. The resident was paid back the $3000. For those of you who do not know the truth...the resident didnt want the work done at that time because of the weather....two sides to every story. Really people...need to worry about your own life!!! We all have issues so please worry about your own.

I never said it was ok...all I said was that the money was paid back. Makes me laugh that people have nothing better to do than search the internet for crap like this...so sad. Go back to school and work on your vocabulary stupid.

you cant steal, then get charged and then pay it back! he should have paid it back immediately when it was decided the work wasnt going to be done. thats like stealing from a store...getting caught thentrying to put it back...doesnt work like that
