Ex-treasurer pleads guilty to stealing $421K from Monroe fire company
A former fire treasurer in Monroe has pleaded guilty to grand larceny for stealing more than $400,000 from the company he volunteered for.
Ian Harriton will now have to repay $421,000 that he admitted to taking from the Lakeside Fire Company as part of a plea deal reached last month, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Harriton was arrested in 2022 after the funds were reported missing by the company president who found bills Harriton was supposed to pay were late.
Authorities say the funds were stolen from the company on Mombasha Road over a two-year period for Harriton’s personal use.
Prosecutors say his sentence in July will depend on his ability to repay what was taken.
