Daniel Lettre of New City, one of two Clarkstown town workers connected to the burglary of an unoccpied home in West Nyack, has resigned from this town job.
His resignation is scheduled to be officially approved at tonight's Clarkstown Town Board meeting at Town Hall in New City. His full-time post pays about $60,000.
Lettre, 33, and Douglas DeMarsico, 34, of New City, were both arrested in March in connection with an incident at a 85 Van Houten Fields home. They both work on a crew that cleans up cul-de-sacs and other problem areas throughout the town.
Daniel Lettre is the son of Clarkstown public works administrator Edward Lettre, whose department also oversees the clean up crews on which Daniel Lettre and DeMarsico work.
Daniel Lettre is charged with third-degree burglary and petty larceny, with DeMarsico charged with petty larceny. DeMarsico and Daniel Lettre were both suspended from their town jobs without pay pending the results of the ongoing investigation.
Police said the burglary included the theft of building materials that were removed from walls in the Van Houten Fields house.
With his resignation, Daniel Lettre does not have to face a Town of Clarkstown administrative hearing.
