COEYMANS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Richard Dick, accused of theft, has been captured by the Coeyman’s Police department. A tip was called in that Dick might be driving through the Coeymans area. A patrol officer initiated a stop on Route 9W and took Dick into custody without any problems.
He was turned over to the Bethlehem Police Department due to a warrant out of their jurisdiction.
Police say Richard Dick, 44, took $15,700 from an individual to whom he promised to sell numerous vehicles. Dick reportedly told the person he repairs and sells repossessed vehicles from the state of Florida.
Dick, at the time of the transaction, identified himself as “Richard Gagnon”, which police say was later determined to be a false name. Police say Dick never produced the vehicles after receiving the money.
