LeRoy Fire Department treasurer arrested
The treasurer of the LeRoy Fire Department is accused of stealing nearly $50,000 in public funds.
Dennis Snow was charged with two counts of grand larceny in the third degree, 42 counts of forgery in the first degree and two counts of falsifying business records.
"This individual blatantly abused his position and went on a spending spree with public money," said New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.
DiNapoli's office found that Snow allegedly made unauthorized transfers, withdrawals and deposits from the department's account, as well as from the firemen's benevolent association.
Snow allegedly used the money to pay his personal bills and admitted that he forged the required co-signers signatures in order to complete his theft.
The audit is expected to be finalized in the next month.
Snow is due back in court on August 13.
