During a one-month period, between June and July 2019, Colon allegedly took five tractors from Hudson River Tractor, located in the Town of Goshen.

At the time of the thefts, Nelson was employed by Hudson River Tractor as a delivery driver, police say. The five tractors together are valued at nearly $40,000, according to police.

Investigators recovered the alleged stolen property after tracking the machines to the City of Middletown, the Hamlet of New Hampton, and with the assistance of the Mahwah Police Department, in New Jersey.
