New York – $366K embezzled from Rossville homeowners, D.A. says
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Danny Juliano, a civilian employee of the NYPD, is accused of embezzling $366,380 from the Woodbrooke Estates Homeowners Association in Rossville and then claiming that he used the funds to buy pool supplies.
Juliano, 50, of Acorn Court in Woodbrooke Estates, who works for the Property Clerk Division of the NYPD, has been indicted on charges that include grand larceny and criminal tax fraud, according to statements from District Attorney Michael E. McMahon and the NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner of Public Information.
After pleading not guilty at his arraignment in State Supreme Court before Justice Stephen J. Rooney, Juliano was released on his own recognizance on Wednesday.
“The crimes alleged undermine the trust and neighborhood fabric that defines a lot of what makes Staten Island great,” McMahon said. “Theft from a homeowners association not only impacts the neighbors whose funds were taken and whose neighborhood suffers from loss of upgrades and maintenance — but also all New York tax payers.” Read more:
