ILION, N.Y. – Three people are accused of stealing more than $65,000 from Remington Arms through a fradulent business scheme over the course of several months in 2019.
David E. Tabor, 49, of Poland; Matthew J. Edwards, 43, of Remsen; and Rachel C. Geer, 38, of Remsen have been indicted on grand larceny, scheme to defraud and conspiracy charges.
According to state police, the three allegedly worked together to set up a fake business in order to steal money from Remington Arms in Ilion, where one of them worked.
Remington noticed suspicious inconsistences in December of 2019, and contacted state police to investigate.
The investigation was turned over to the Herkimer County district attorney’s office for grand jury consideration in November of 2020, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Edwards and Geer were arrested on Friday, June 11, and Tabor turned himself in to New York State Police on Monday, June 14.
