An employee of Able 2, a nonprofit aiding those with developmental disabilities, has been arrested for allegedly stealing more than $9,000 from a client’s account.


The Chemung County Sheriff’s Office reports that Amanda L. Potter, 34, from Wellsburg, faces charges of grand larceny after an investigation linked her to unauthorized transactions made from a Horseheads location client’s debit account between October 2023 and March 2024.

The discovery of the theft, totaling $9,842.25, prompted an investigation after Able 2 officials noticed unauthorized debit card activities in March. Investigators claim Potter accessed the client’s card from a secure unit and used it for personal ATM withdrawals.

She has since been arrested and issued a court appearance ticket for the Town of Horseheads, highlighting the ongoing issue of trust and security within caregiving institutions.
