Murder investigation leads to theft arrest
A high-profile murder investigation has led to the arrest of two men accused of stealing thousands of dollars of hay from a farm in northern Westchester.
State police say Hugo Ramirez-Morales and Angel Parra Penafiel, both 33 years old and from North Salem, stole $30,000 worth of hay from Windswept Farm.
Both were employed as laborers at the farm formally owned by 83-year-old Lois Colley. Police say they stole the hay for several years and sold it.
Colley was found dead in her home in November and was the wife of Eugene Colley, a multimillionaire who owns more than 100 McDonald's franchises.
Police have only charged the men with theft and not in Colley's murder.
Investigators have not made any arrests in the case.
Ramirez-Morales and Penafiel are being held at the Westchester County Jail on $50,000 bail.
