Cops: Highway chief used NY town's trucks, workers
PATTERSON, NY (WABC) -- State police say a suburban New York highway superintendent used town money, equipment and employees for personal projects.
Senior Investigator Derek Brockhoff said Thursday that 46-year-old Charles Williams Jr. also exposed himself to a local resident at a town construction site.
Williams works for the Town of Patterson, in Putnam County. He's charged with grand larceny, petty larceny, official misconduct and public lewdness.
Police say he stole gasoline, scrap metal and fill. He's also accused of using town equipment and employees to renovate his home, landscape his pool and repair his cars.
Williams was arraigned Wednesday and sent to jail. Town court clerk Charlotte Fitzsimmons says no plea was entered and she had no record of a defense attorney.
