The town supervisor of Rensselaerville was under investigation. Now, he's been arrested.
State police arrested 43-year-old Steven Pfleging. He is charged with grand larceny, falsifying business records and official misconduct.
Investigators made the arrest after a complaint was made by the Rensselaerville Town Board. The town's finances were reviewed by an accounting firm and they noticed money was missing. Members say Pfleging wrote checks for nearly $13,000 from the town's checking account to himself.
NewsChannel 13 was at a Town Board meeting Thursday night in Rensselaerville, held to inform the public about the issue.
Pfleging has resigned. The town says it will now hire an outside payroll service.
