Livingston Sheriff: Felony Arrest Following Search Warrant With Batavia PD

LEICESTER: Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of a Leicester woman on a felony level charge. Kim M. Diamond, age 47 of Leicester, was charged with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Third Degree, a class D felony.  The arrest follows an investigation that was conducted in collaboration with the Batavia City Police Department. In March of 2016, Sheriff’s Investigators assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division assisted the Batavia Police Department in executing a search warrant at a residence in the Town of Leicester.  During that search, stolen property was allegedly recovered that had been reported stolen to the Batavia Police. Police said over the course of the past few months, the property has been identified and valued which is why the arrest was delayed.    The value was placed at more than $11,500. According to a press release issued today, Kim Diamond was arrested and transported to Central Booking at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention.   Livingston County District Attorney Greg McCaffrey recommended Diamond be released on her own recognizance.  Diamond was arraigned on July 14th in Geneseo Town Court before Justice Kathleen Houston.   The woman was released. The arrest was conducted by Investigator Bradley Schneider of the Sheriff's Office Criminal investigations Division.  Assisting in this case was Investigator Daniel Rittenhouse, also of the Criminal Investigations Division.  Further charges by the Batavia City Police Department are expected.
