MIDDLETOWN – A former Middletown couple is under arrest following a two-year investigation into the theft of more than $82,000 from both the Goshen Hardware store in the Village of Goshen and Ayres and Galloway Hardware in the City of Middletown. The larcenies are alleged to have taken place from early 2011 through late 2013 while both Lawrence Sienko and his wife, Nadine Sienko, both worked for the company that owns both stores.
The Sienkos were located living in Summerville, South Carolina and brought back to Orange County where they were charged with three counts each of grand larceny. Nadine was also charged with 43 counts of falsifying business records.
The couple had been indicted by an Orange County grand jury.
