Owego man accused of stealing from Guthrie

An Owego man has been arrested for allegedly stealing over $16,000 from Guthrie Hospital in Sayre. 72-year-old Elton Godfrey worked as a courier for Guthrie, when he is said to have stolen the money. Police say that Godfrey was in charge of delivering money deposit bags from the hospital’s dietary department to M&T Bank. On April 11th, authorities were alerted when one of the deposit bags, containing over $5,000, was reported missing. A further police investigation revealed similar occurrences on March 14th, March 23rd, and April 1st. Hospital documents show that Godfrey collected the deposit bags, but that the deposits never made it to the bank. Godfrey has since been arraigned and released to appear back in court on June 7th.

Breaking news: Cal Harris found not guilty

Cal Harris is not guilty of murder.

That was the verdict announced by Judge Richard Mott in Schoharie County Court today. The judge announced his verdict around 2:15pm, declaring simply “not guilty,” while announcing his decision to both sides in the courtroom.

This was the fourth murder trial for the former Tioga County businessman, who elected to have a trial by judge this time. Harris had been convicted twice before but those convictions had been overturned on appeal. The third trial ended when the jury could not reach a verdict.

Harris is now free after the judge’s decision today.
