LOCKPORT

 
Fire company treasurer arrested in theft

 
The former South Lockport Fire Co. treasurer is accused of stealing $10,000 from the company.
Donald St. Cyr, Jr. of Appleton was charged Thursday with third-degree grand larceny.
The New York State Police said it began an investigation after the South Lockport Fire Co. suspected that St. Cyr misappropriated $10,000 in funds, while acting as the company’s treasurer.
St. Cyr had previously resigned as treasurer and a subsequent audit of company records eventually led to the police investigation and arrest.
He was arraigned before Lockport Town Justice Raymond Schilling and released on his own recognizance. A return date of June 20 has been scheduled in Lockport Town Court.
