Cashier charged with stealing $75K in NY park fees
New York (AP) - A cashier at a New York state park in upper Manhattan has been accused of stealing $75,000 worth of fees from the cash register.
Fatima Cooper was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of second-degree grand larceny.
State Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott says the 47-year-old Cooper pocketed fees at Riverbank State Park between 2009 and 2011.
Riverbank State Park is a 28-acre park built on top of a sewage treatment facility on the Hudson River.
The park charges fees for use of the pool, the ice skating rink, picnic tables and other facilities.
Cooper is due back in court Thursday. The name of her attorney was not immediately available.
