Tarrytown Police are investigating a grand larceny case
allegedly originating right next door to police headquarters.
A member of the Franklin Street Riverside Hose Company reported to police that someone the company had hired to do work for them had allegedly been making unauthorized charges on the Engine Company's Key Bank Mastercard to the tune of $6,075.14.
First Assistant Chief William Logan said "it was not one of our members, it had nothing to do with Riverside Hose," as Tarrytown police had originally reported.
Instead, Logan said, they had hired someone to rebuild their antique firetruck. In the course of his work, the suspect had access to their credit card to order parts. "After a couple months, we realized he had been making personal purchases," Logan said.
The charges were made between June 11, 2012 to
April 13, 2013.
The case is still under investigation.
