Court Date Set For Suspected Thief

A January 24th arraignment has been set for a Putnam County man, charged with theft of property after allegedly stealing a cell phone from a local restaurant.  Police say the surveillance video at Taste of China restaurant on North Washington Avenue captured 21-year-old Nephthali Damian DaChoute allegedly reaching over the counter at the business and stealing the Iphone of one of the employees.  The phone was valued at $300. Detectives reportedly identified DaChoute from that video and issued a warrant for his arrest, which was served last week.
