According to a news release from New York Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, the former clerk of the town of Rosendale justice court stole nearly $6,000 in cash from collections without detection.

The findings were uncovered in an audit by the Comptroller’s office.

The clerk, Trudy Harper, was arrested in June and charged by Ulster County District Attorney D. Holley Carnright with third degree grand larceny, a class D felony. Harper is due back in Saugerties Town Court on Dec. 10.

    First opened as a movie theater in February of 1949, the historic Rosendale Theatre in Rosendale, NY was bought by the non-profit organization, The Rosendale Theatre Collective, in August of 2013.

Thanks to support from the community, The Rosendale Theatre Collective reached a fund-raising goal and has been running the theatre since.
