Man arraigned after fleeing to Montana, held on $100K

NORWICH – Charles Brasington, a 37-year-old Bainbridge resident, was arraigned on the class E felony of bail jumping in the second degree and remanded back to the county jail after he allegedly posted an $80,000 bail and fled to Montana where he was arrested last fall.

After a four-month-long investigation in 2013, New York State Police troopers allege Brasington rented nearly $500,000 worth of equipment from Beck Equipment Inc. and never returned the equipment.

According to a lawsuit filed by Beck Equipment Inc., it is alleged Brasington rented six pieces of equipment, which consisted of two excavators, a dozer, a skid steer and a loader backhoe, under the guise of using for his business, Irving Dutch Tree Co. Instead of using it for his business, read the lawsuit, Brasington sold the equipment to a local auction company for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
