Deputies in Steuben County say a Hammondsport resident provided a false statement and was subsequently arrested this week.
Sheriff Jim Allard says that 22-year-old Carrington Ellis provided a false statement during an investigation, which started in early-December.
Those investigators involved in the case say that at least two written, false statements were provided to law enforcement, which resulted in the arrest.
Ellis was charged with filing a false written statement. The ticket will be answered in Bath Town Court.
