Lee Ann Borg 020188

Feb. 26, 2019 — Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, announced Lee Ann Borg of Croton-on-Hudson, a former employee of the Rye YMCA, was arraigned on a charge of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, a class C felony.

As the former senior program manager of the Rye YMCA, Borg was authorized to make purchases for its programs and events. She allegedly abused that authority by making personal purchases from retail stores for items such as prescription medication, clothing and other personal items as well as several thousand dollars in gift cards deposited into her PayPal account for her personal use. The YMCA discovered the theft and reported it to the District Attorney’s Office.

ADAs Emily Rowe-Smith of the Investigations Division Economic Crimes Bureau, and James Tobin, of the District Attorney’s Rye Branch, are handling the case.

  1. Another Rye circumvention of internal accounting controls fraud? No one learned anything about this after RM Staffing & Stealing, Inc. set up by Yandrasevich, Otis & Plunkett?

    And the $6M lifted from our city hall treasury by builders & hooked-up homeowners underreporting their project costs and permit fees like mad during The Sack Administration? And no special audit on these phony affidavits after I exposed the whole rotten scheme here on MyRye based in the exact same record area at city hall I used to audit myself during college?

    The YMCA has lots of Rye political class donors who criticized those who exposed these other municipal crimes as being unreliable, uncivilized & uncouth. Where will they point their fingers this time? We’ll find out in the next edition of The Rye Record.
