On 2/4/15 Deputy Shepard responded to Gallea’s Tropical Greenhouse at the above address for the reported stolen Juniper Bonsai Tree. According to staff a male was in the store a week before this incident asking questions about the tree. He was informed it wasn’t for sale. On this date the same male came back to the store and purchased various items, but also loaded the tree into his truck before leaving. Employees had video of the incident and retrieved images of the vehicle as well. Deputy Shepard tracked the credit card used back to Anthony Mazza of Railroad Mills Rd in Pittsford. Mazza owns a vehicle identical to the one in the video. Mazza was interviewed by Deputy Shepard, admitting to taking the tree, and explained it as a mistake. Mazza was arrested for GL 4th (Tree was valued at $1,100) and issued an appearance ticket.
