Harrison abuzz after alleged pantry theft videos released

The Town of Harrison is abuzz after News 12 aired surveillance video last night of food pantry workers allegedly stealing from the town, and Harrison's mayor is now reacting to the footage.

Mayor Joan Walsh said that after reviewing the surveillance footage that the video speaks for itself. Walsh added that she knew she would have to either fire or suspend all of the six accused employees after watching the video for the first time.

The six town employees, who have all been fired, suspended or have resigned, can allegedly be seen on the video and appear to be trying on shorts, jackets, shoes and more inside a Crotona Avenue pantry.

Mayor Walsh said that while she is still shocked by the video and the crimes perpetrated in her town, she is vowing to make sure it never happens again, and that trust is restored in the community.
