On Monday, July 11, 2022, deputies from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office arrested 29-year-old Dakota R. Boyce of Monguap Valley, New York for grand larceny in the third degree, a class D Felony. The Sheriff’s Office began investigating Boyce in April when the family of a dead woman who used to live on Britman Road in the Town of Bethel contacted police to say that someone stole items from the dead woman's home.

Items that were taken from the vacant house trailer began showing up for sale on Facebook and other social media sites, police say. The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office continued to monitor the sales until one day when the woman's home was posted for sale.

“We were shocked”, Undersheriff Eric Chaboty stated. “It’s one thing to steal your dead neighbor’s personal items, but to think you could steal her entire residence and get away with it, you’ve got to be kidding."
