VERONA A Durhamville man was charged with multiple offenses under the Fish and Wildlife Law.

Mark R. Boncella, 45, of Mills Road in Durhamville, was charged with two counts of killing a wild deer except as permitted under the Fish and Wildlife Law, two counts of taking a deer with a rifle during the bow season in the southern zone, one count of taking big game in excess of bag limit, and one count of falsifying a legal document, all misdemeanor charges.

On Nov. 16, at 1 p.m. in the Town of Verona, Conservation Officer Vernon Fonda from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation responded to a call that someone possibly shot a large deer with a rifle in the Southern Zone.

Upon arrival, a 10-point buck was found hanging inside the barn. After interviewing the resident, it was determined the deer had been taken illegally. Further interview determined that another deer had also been taken illegally. A 10-point, and 15-point buck were both seized as evidence.

The charges are answerable to the Town of Verona Court.
