You may remember the Mt. Kisco meter man that made off with $89,000 in quarters? Well, it did take him five years to collect them all. He pled guilty this week to Grand Larceny.
According to the Westchester DA, over the five year period from January 5th 2009 until May 6th, 2014, the defendant, a Parking Enforcement Officer for the Village of Mt. Kisco, took Village parking meter revenue belonging to his employer, the Village of Mt. Kisco.
The defendant would empty the meters and deposit part of the proceeds, usually in the form of quarters, into his bank account at the local branch of People’s United Savings Bank on Moger Avenue in the Village.
To this point in the investigation the total amount of the larceny is in excess of $89,000.
Mt Kisco police were alerted to the thefts and along with investigators from the District Attorney’s office initiated a surveillance of the defendant over a period of time.
He was confronted as he left the bank branch after making a deposit and subsequently arrested.
Sentencing will be on December 23rd, 2014.
