Parking officer accused of stealing $89,000 from meters
MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. (PIX11) – A parking enforcement officer allegedly stole more than $89,000 in coins from meters in a suburban New York town, prosecutors said.
Jeffrey Daday, 35, of Brewster, was arrested Tuesday outside a bank after he allegedly made a deposit, according to the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.
Daday is accused of swiping tens of thousands of dollars over a five-year period, officials said.
He would allegedly empty the meters and take some of the change for himself, allegedly depositing the loot of silver coins into his account at a Mount Kisco bank, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said police in the 10,800-resident town were tipped off to Daday’s alleged scheme, but would not say how. Investigators set up surveillance of Daday and confronted him leaving the bank this week.
Daday pleaded not guilty to one count of felony grand larceny in the second degree and released on his own recognizance, prosecutors said.
If convicted, Daday faces up to 15 years in prison. His next court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.
