GOSHEN — Erick Rivera just couldn't take his mind off those fillies next door.

At least a dozen times since July, the 18-year-old man crept from his rented room in an inn overlooking the Goshen Historic Track and had his way with his equine neighbors, Village of Goshen police have concluded after a six-month-long investigation.

Rivera's amorous adventures ended Thursday evening when police charged Rivera with a felony burglary count and two misdemeanors – sexual misconduct with an animal and petit larceny. He's being held in the Orange County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail.

Police expected to file four additional counts each of burglary and sexual misconduct against Rivera on Friday.

Village police Chief James Watt said Rivera entered the unlocked stables after midnight and used bridles to immobilize the horses in their stalls for each of his escapades.

He lived next door at the Goshen Inn and had no affiliation with the 169-year-old track, which bills itself as the oldest active harness-racing venue in the country.

Police used surveillance camera recordings to identify Rivera. He was never caught in the act, although employees told police they saw someone bolt from the stables several times in the early-morning hours, Watt said.

Village police have accumulated a litany of sardonic observations during the six months they sought to identify their human stallion. The only one Watt was prepared to repeat in print involved a comparison to the professional football player who served prison time for organizing dog fights.

Hmmm, no, I'm pretty sure killing the animals is worse, but that's just me. :rolleyes2:
