The Sag Harbor Village treasurer told village police last Thursday that money had been stolen from a village payroll account to the tune of $10,200 via fraudulent checks.
According to the police report, the treasurer, Timothy Bullock, said that the seven checks in question were “never issued” by his office, but had been presented for cashing at Chase Bank and Bank of America between March 16 and last Thursday.
The fraudulent checks were discovered when the banks contacted the village to confirm their validity. An “affidavit of unauthorized debit” has been filed. The theft is considered an incident of grand larceny.
“They’re expecting to get the funds back,” Mr. Bullock said by phone on Tuesday.
