Citizen gathers belongings of panhandler and delivers them to Batavia PD

By Howard B. Owens

A police officer is requested to Batavia PD headquarters to meet with a man who says there was a man in front of City Hall "illegally panhandling" so he gathered the panhandler's belongings and brought them to the police station.

Sounds to me like the "man" just committed larceny, not sure to what degree, depending on the value of the property he illegally deprived this "panhandler" from having. Given what info. is available, I would think the "man" should be charged.
