COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- The former co-director of the Cooperstown Food Pantry was charged with stealing thousands from the organization.
AllOtsego.com reports that Antoine Bourbon-Parme stole more than $18,000 from the food pantry, according to court documents.
Bourbon-Parme, also known by the name Anthony Cazzari, is alleged to have forged the names of retired director Audrey Murray, director Stacey Smith, and president Sharon Oberriter on eight separate checks – all stemming back to October 2017.
They say the last check, which was dated January 22, 2019, was written for nearly $1,900.
After a review of financial records, it was discovered that unauthorized checks were being drafted and cashed.
Bourbon-Parme was charged with third-degree grand larceny and is due back in court April 24.
