Statement From Corning Police Chief Jeff Spaulding:

On January 28, 2022, at about 3:30PM, members of the Corning Police Department traveled to the Tioga County NY Jail and arrested: MEGAN D. MARSH, age 35 of Savona, NY. Ms. Marsh was being released on a $10 bail after incurring the charges of Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 3rd Degree, a D felony, and Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer In A Motor Vehicle 3rd Degree, a misdemeanor, when she allegedly led police on a vehicle pursuit in a stolen vehicle taken from the Village of Painted Post.

The City of Corning Police Department has charged Ms. Marsh with:
Robbery in the Second Degree, a felony
Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree, a felony
Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, a felony

These charges allege that Ms. Marsh was the person that stole an idling motor vehicle from Baker Street in the City of Corning on January 24th and dragged the owner when he tried to prevent her from stealing his car. That vehicle was later recovered in Watkins Glen by the Watkins Glen Village Police Department.

Additionally, Ms. Marsh has been charged on Corning City Court warrants alleging that she failed to appear on previous drug charges and Disorderly Conduct charges.

Ms. Marsh was taken to the Steuben County Jail and was arraigned this morning on the Robbery, Reckless Endangerment, and Grand Larceny charges. Bail was set at $5,000 cash or $10,000 property bond. She is scheduled to appear in Corning City Court at a later date.

Ms. Marsh is also the same person that was arrested by the New York State Police in Painted Post for allegedly stealing a motor vehicle from Painted Post back on December 28, 2021.

In the evening of 01/27/2022 the stolen vehicle was spotted in Tioga County NY. Police located the vehicle which fled towards PA in to Athens, then back to NY and ultimately stopped in the Elmira area. A female (Megan Marsh) was found to have been driving the vehicle and arrested. We would like to thank the person that spotted the vehicle and all other police agencies in NY and PA that assisted in stopping the stolen vehicle and apprehending the person that was in possession of it.
