COHOCTON — Former Cohocton Mayor Thomas Cox, 71, was arrested once more on the Cohocton Developmental Corporation premises.

New York State Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) from the Wayland barracks received a report of a possible burglary at the Cohocton Developmental Corporation.

Investigators conducted area interviews and determined the suspect, Cox, knowingly entered the Cohocton Developmental Corporation (CDC) after being advised to stay off the premises.

Cox was subsequently arrested and charged with one count of third-degree Criminal Trespass, a class-B misdemeanor. Cox was issued an appearance ticket returnable for the village of Cohocton Court next month. 

In February of this year Cox was arrested for allegedly providing alcohol to two teen males at the same facility. Troopers had arrived to find two minors ages 14 and 19 drinking on the premises.

State Police arrested Cox and charged him with two counts of first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child. He was arraigned and released on his own recognizance.
