On October 16th, 2021 Deputy Jason Page responded to a residence on Hillside Drive, in the Town of Avon, for the report of a firearm that had been stolen from the residence.
It is alleged through the investigation that Ryan M. Arner, age 35 from Avon, NY, did steal the firearm from the residence before selling it to a third party.
Deputies did recover the stolen firearm through the investigation.
On November 17th, 2021 Arner was arrested and charged with felony Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree.
Arner was turned over to the Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail due to the felony level charges. It was recommended that Arner be held without the possibility of bail, due to him having two previous felony convictions.
Arner was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Village of Dansville Justice Scott Kenney. The Judge did remand Arner to the custody of the Sheriff without the possibility of bail.
The Livingston County Public Defender’s Office was present and represented Arner at the court arraignment for his defense. The Livingston County District Attorney’s Office was notified but did not appear to represent the people.
Assisting with the investigation for the Sheriff’s Office was Deputy Bradley Little and Deputy Michael Wade of the Patrol Division and Investigator Shawn Whitford of the Criminal Investigations Division.
