O'burg Man Charged In Theft From Priest
An Ogdensburg man will be arraigned Monday in St. Lawrence County Court after allegedly stealing more than $17,000 from a Catholic priest living at St. Joseph's Nursing Home.
Court documents show Austin is alleged to have stolen and cashed several checks belonging to the Community Bank account of 82 year old Rev. Edward Papp from December 2012 to April 2013.
Austin is believed to have obtained the checks through a worker at the nursing home who had access to them.
So far, there have been no other arrests in connection with the theft.
