ALBION – Four people were arraigned in Orleans County Court on Monday for felony grand larceny crimes.

The following all pleaded not guilty and were arraigned by Judge James Punch:

• Michael W. Oldfeld, 48, of Franklin Street in Dansville appeared in court and was arraigned on two counts of third-degree grand larceny and one count of scheme to defraud in the first degree.

Oldfeld had contracts in Orleans County to build pole barns. He allegedly accepted down payments and money for work on the barns, but did not complete the jobs, District Attorney Joe Cardone said. Oldfeld is likely to face similar charges in other counties, the DA said.

The judge set bail at $10,000 for Oldfeld.

• Maria C. Conte, 28, of Pearl Street in Medina was arraigned on two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny. She allegedly took a credit card from another person and used it to take out about $2,000 from an ATM, the DA’s office said.

Her bail was set at $1,000.

Daniel P. Musson, 24, of Chili Avenue in Rochester was arraigned for third-degree grand larceny after he allegedly took jewelry on Aug. 9 worth about $3,000. He also faces charges of first-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree (for allegedly having more than 500 milligrams of cocaine), and criminal possession of stolen property (for allegedly having someone else’s credit card).

Bail was set at $15,000.

• Christopher M. Bescherer, 34, of Lattin Road, Albion, faces one count of grand larceny in the fourth degree for allegedly stealing cylinders on May 27. He also was arraigned for criminal contempt in the second degree for violating an order of protection.

Bail was set at $15,000.
