SOMERS — Authorities say a New York state trooper has been arrested for stealing more than $20,000 worth of landscaping equipment.
Marko Kos was arrested Wednesday and charged with grand larceny.
The equipment was worth about $22,000 and was reported stolen to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office in September 2014.
Investigators say the theft occurred while the 35-year-old Brewster man was off-duty.
He has been suspended without pay.
Kos came on the force in September 2003; he’s assigned to the Somers barracks.
It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
