Coffee maker case delayed for a week

JOHNSTOWN – The City Court case of suspended Fulton County Historian Peter C. Betz was adjourned Tuesday for one week.

No reason was given for the rescheduling, but the case will be heard at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Betz was charged May 7 with misdemeanor petit larceny. City police allege Betz stole a Keurig coffee maker from the Fulton County Office Building where he works and replaced it with another one. Police say the theft of the $125 item occurred in the grand jury room in the building’s basement April 9.
