Sheriff: Pennsylvania man arrested on 14 charges in Steuben County after evading police for a week

A Pennsylvania man was taken into custody on more than a dozen charges in the Southern Tier after a lengthy investigation that involved several agencies including United States Secret Service.

Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard reports that on November 13th deputies arrested Jesse Colegrove, 32, of Pennsylvania following an investigation of several larcenies, burglaries, and passing of counterfeit money locally.

Colegrove is accused of committing several crimes – including the theft of vehicles, running from police, passing counterfeit money, and larcenies.




Sheriff Allard says he was taken into custody by Elmira Police following a week-long attempt to take him into custody.

Several agencies including the Corning Police Department, Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, and U.S. Secret Service were all involved in the investigation.

Colegrove was ultimately charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, third-degree criminal possession of stolen property, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, unlawfully fleeing a police officer, possession of a forged instrument, petit larceny, six counts of reckless endangerment, and violation of a conditional sentence.

He will appear in local court at a later date to answer the charges.
