RPD officer charged with grand larceny pleads not guilty


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Rochester police officer accused of stealing merchandise from Home Depot in Henrietta pleaded not guilty in court on Tuesday.

Officer Dave Pearson, a 13-year-veteran of the force, was arrested by Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies last month and charged with grand larceny.

Officials from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office say Pearson was arrested as a result of an ongoing investigation into thefts from the Home Depot store on Jefferson Road in Henrietta. They say the thefts were in excess of $1,000.

Pearson was arraigned in Henrietta Town Court Tuesday. He is scheduled to return to court on August 5.
