ONEONTA – The alleged theft of a doghouse from a Church Street porch lead police on a foot chase to nab the suspect.

At 2:34 a.m., the homeowner at 18 Church St. alerted police that someone was trying to steal a doghouse off his front porch.  Police responded, and the suspect fled, dropping the doghouse on the lawn and damaging it.

The chase continued to Lawn Avenue, where Alex Tolman, 22, Poughkeepsie, was apprehended, police said.    Intoxicated, he told officers he “thought it would be funny” to take the doghouse and put it on another porch in the neighborhood, according to police.

Tolman was charged with Petit Larceny and Criminal Mischief in the fourth degree, both misdemeanors.  He was released on $250 bail and a ticket to appear in court at a later date.
