Livingston County Sheriff's Office Photograph Samantha J. Ochsenhirt

LIMA – An Ontario County woman is facing felony grand larceny charges in Livingston County after allegedly writing a $1,000 check to a landlord that her account was unable to cover, according to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.

Samantha J. Ochsenhirt, 29, of Phelps, was arrested June 24 by Sheriff’s Investigator Josh Monster and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a Class E felony.

Fourth-degree grand larceny is a charge that represents theft of property where the value of the property is greater than $1,000, according to state penal law.

It is alleged that on Jan. 14, Ochsenhirt wrote a check to her landlord from a Money Network prepaid account for $1,000. It is further alleged that Ochsenhirt did not have $1,000 in the account to cover the amount of the check.

Ochsenhirt was turned over to Central Booking deputies at Livingston County Jail for processing and released on an appearance ticket to return to Town of Lima Court at a later date. The charge did not qualify for arraignment under the state Justice Reform Act.
