So now that he has targeted the police themselves, do we FINALLY have their attention? Until recently, the Whitestown PD has had no interest in nailing this kid or his buddies.


YORKVILLE — A man who previously was arrested for allegedly stealing items out of cars in the Whitesboro neighborhood of Herthum Heights has now been accused of attempting to steal items out of police vehicles, Yorkville police said.

Joseph Hess, 18, of Whitesboro, was charged with grand larceny, third-degree criminal mischief, both felonies, and three counts of petit larceny, a misdemeanor, police said.

Officer Patrick Collea said he was in the Yorkville police station when he noticed a man attempting to open a police car. When he yelled at him, Hess fled the scene.

Yorkville, along with Whitestown, Whitesboro and New York Mills police, as well as Oneida County sheriff’s deputies and state police, searched the area, and Hess eventually was chased on foot by New York Mills police and apprehended on the banks of the Sauquoit creek in Whitesboro, Collea said.

Hess was found attempting to discard the stolen items into the creek, police said.

During the investigation, police said they received a call that a truck had driven into Venice Pizzeria in Yorkville. Police then found a laptop from one of the police’s cars next to it.

“He attempted to steal the truck from the Yorkville car wash on Oriskany Boulevard,” Collea said.“But the truck had no breaks, and it went into the pizzeria.”

Hess was arraigned in Whitestown Town Court and was being held on $50,000 bond or $25,000 cash bail, police said.

Additional charges are pending as police investigate further, Collea said.
