Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Hunter R. Genrich

AVON – A Monroe County man is facing grand larceny charges after allegedly taking equipment valued at nearly $17,000 from an Avon business, reports the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.

Hunter R. Genrich, 20, of Rochester, was charged with two counts of third-degree grand larceny, a Class D felony, following a lengthy investigation.

Genrich allegedly went to an equipment dealer in Avon on July 19, 2019, where he took home a 2016 John Deere Gator and a John Deere mower conditioner to test before purchasing. The investigation further alleges that Genrich never paid for or returned the equipment and that he sold the equipment to third parties. The value of the Gator was estimated at $8,995, and the mower conditioner was estimated to be worth $7,900, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Genrich was arrested June 12 and turned over to Central Booking deputies at Livingston County Jail for processing. He was issued appearance tickets and will answer to the charges in the Town of Avon Court at a later date. The offenses did not qualify for arraignment.

The investigation was handled by Deputy Michael Phillips and Investigator Connor Sanford.
