Cops: Man stole trees from Riverhead park
An alleged illegal immigrant is accused of stealing dozens of trees from state park property in Riverhead.
Investigators say they caught Gilberto Arturo Bonilla-Sorto, of Maryland, with the stolen trees in his pickup truck.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation says Bonilla-Sorto took the trees from the Peconic River Headwater Natural Resource Area.
Investigators say about 86 trees were taken over several weeks.
Bonilla-Sorta faces deportation since he was also wanted on an immigration warrant.
