Woman arrested for trying to steal a horse | Crime

WILSON – A Lockport woman is facing charges after attempting to take a horse from a Maple Road farm in Wilson.

Kathrin L. Caccamise, 49, 4931 Ridge Road, was charged April 8 with third-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny. She was scheduled to appear in Wilson Town Court on April 10.

A Niagara County Sheriff’s deputy was called to the Maple Road farm at about 8:25 p.m. and saw Caccamise’s vehicle parked on the side of the road with a horse trailer attached to it. The deputy asked Caccamise what she was doing there, and she reportedly responded by saying the property owners were not taking care of the horse properly. Caccamise had given them the horse a year earlier, but she did not like how the horse was being treated. The property owners showed the deputy were the horse was being kept, which was a barn with food, water and hay. The horse was tied up at the time because, according to the property owners, they were in the process of fixing a fence that kept the horse corralled.

They wanted to press charges against Caccamise. Caccamise was taken to Niagara County Jail on $5,000 bail.
