Another Treasurer Goes Dipping

Got 'em For Over $300 K.

THREE QUEENS, NEW YORK, VOLUNTEER EMTs were arraigned yesterday (Thursday) on several grand larceny charges.  They are accused of stealing more than $320,000 from the Corona Community Volunteer Ambulance Corps in Queens and using the funds for their personal enrichment.

WNBC-TV is reporting:

Prosecutors say the 37-year-old ambulance corps' treasurer (Daniel Dominguez) allegedly transferred more than $300,000 from the organization’s bank account into his own, then spent the money on fancy meals, luxury car service trips and vacations in Disney World and Niagara Falls.

Prosecutors allege that the president transferred money and withdrew cash from the organization's bank account. He also is accused of using one of the corps’ credit cards to make car payments and overseas money transfers.

The investigation began when some board members of the rescue squad discovered some funds missing and notified the State Attorney General's office.

    “Stealing” is such a harsh word. This is in the great New York Tammany tradition of taking a cut of the public funds.

      And they are such a wonderfully diverse group, too.
