DANSVILLE — In a creepy caper, a Dansville woman was arrested for allegedly stealing funds from a local cemetery association.
On Tuesday, Sept. 18, State Police in Wayland arrested Barbara Howe, 75, of county Road 46, Dansville, and charged her with third-degree grand larceny, a class-D felony, second-degree forgery, a class-D felony and first-degree falsifying business records, a class-E felony.
Howe was arrested after allegedly stealing over $10,000 from a cemetery association in South Dansville, while she was the Treasurer. Howe also allegedly attempted to conceal the larceny by making false entries into the business records of the association.
Howe was issued an appearance ticket to appear in the Town of Dansville court at a later date.
