A corrections officer with the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office has been charged with grand larceny by New York State Police.
Kris Kester, who is still employed by the sheriff’s office there, was convicted of taking $2,500 from the Bath Ambulance Corp. while he was president.
District Attorney Brooks Baker said that bookkeeping was a problem as it was unclear exactly how much money was taken over time.
Kester entered a plea to petit larceny and was ordered to repay the $2,500.
Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard said the county is aware of the situation and will take appropriate action.
