NORWICH – While being processed for an unrelated cocaine possession arrest, it was discovered 31-year-old Aaron M. Bishop of Plymouth was also the prime suspect in a grand larceny case, and he was remanded without bail by the local court. Bishop was later arraigned in Chenango County Court for grand larceny and remanded back to the county jail with bail.
On Feb. 27, following a traffic stop in the Town of Columbus, the Sheriff's Office had arrested Bishop for criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree. It is alleged Bishop was found to be in possession of cocaine during the traffic stop.
Bishop was to be processed and released on an appearance ticket to appear in the Town of Columbus Court at a later date.
While Sheriff's Office deputies were processing Bishop after his arrest, it was discovered that Bishop was a suspect in a grand larceny investigation regarding the theft of $1,000 and a firearm from a Town of Plymouth residence.
A deputy interviewed Bishop and allegedly confirmed Bishop was the thief who had stolen the cash and firearm from the Plymouth residence.
