SALAMANCA - A Cattaraugus County man is behind bars after allegedly stealing a truck and threatening two women.
On Thursday afternoon, the New York State Police, Salamanca Police Department and Seneca Marshals assisted the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office in locating and charging Andrew J. Jaquish with fourth-degree grand larceny, first-degree criminal contempt, second-degree criminal contempt, two counts of second-degree menacing and third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, the Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday.
Jaquish, 28, of 3627 North Authority Road in Killbuck, allegedly stole a truck belonging to a local woman from O'Laughlin Buick GMC Cadillac in Great Valley. He allegedly proceeded to drive the truck to Center Road in Salamanca, where he ended up getting into a domestic incident with two women, police said.
According to police, Jaquish pointed a loaded bow and arrow at two victims, telling them both he would shoot them. He proceeded to leave the area in the stolen truck, and allegedly left it parked a short way away, leaving on foot. Jaquish then borrowed a phone to call the truck's owner and threatened her. Deputies found him walking on Route 417 in Killbuck a short time later and took him into custody.
He was transported to the Salamanca Police Department for processing before going in front of Carrollton's judge for arraignment. Jaquish was sent to Cattaraugus County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. He is due back in court at a later date.
