A New City man is accused of stealing nearly $5,000 from the New City gas station owned by his father, according to Rokland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe.
Amir Choudhry, 27, of 14 Buena Vista Road, who was employed at the gas station on Main Street, is charged with third-degree grand larceny. Zugibe said Choudhry is accused of obtaining the money by failing to turn over a check for $4,866 from the attached auto repair business at the gas station in November 2011.
The check was supposed to be deposited in the business account for the gas station. Zugibe said Choudhry is accused of opening a new bank account, at the same branch used by his father, with the same corporate name used by his father, and depositing the check in the new account.
Choudhry is charged with withdrawing the money the next day.
Choudhry has been arraigned in the Clarkstown Town Court by Judge Rolf Thorson and released pending a July 18 hearing. He faces up to seven years in state prison if convicted.
