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.
