There has been a change of plea for a Troy police officer.

Aaron Collington pleaded guilty to a felony grand larceny charge.


Collington admitted to embezzling $6,200 from the Troy PBA, the union he led until stepping down after his arrest.

Court documents say the 49-year-old detective used the money to pay rent at his home in Nassau.

He will be on probation for a year, has to do 250 hours of community service and pay back the money he stole from the PBA.
