Two men currently jailed in the Hudson Valley are accused of stealing slabs of blue stone from sidewalks in Kingston.

In April 2017, the Kingston Police Department began an investigation into the theft of slabs of blue stone from sidewalks from the area of West Chestnut Street.

During the course of the investigation, 30-year-old Erik F. Fehring was developed as a suspect, police say.

According to the Kingston Police Department, Fehring and 58-year-old William H. Williams sold the blue stone to a pawn shop in the Kerhonkson area not long after the thefts.

Police recovered the blue stone after it was resold to a third party.

Ferhing and Williams, both current inmates at the Ulster County Jail for unrelated charges, were both charged with criminal possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor.
