Fishkill village cop arrested for embezzling from PBA



FISHKILL – A 20-year-veteran of the Village of Fishkill Police
Department was arrested on Friday on a felony charge of grand larceny
for allegedly stealing $36,720 from the police department’s Police
Benevolent Association while she served as treasurer.

Lori Bailey, 47, of Highland Falls, allegedly wrote a PBA check for $33,000
to her mortgage company and another one for over $3,300 made out to “cash.”

She was arraigned in Fishkill Village Court and released on $1,000 cash

“I am definitely disappointed,” said Fishkill Mayor James
Miccio. “You never want to have one of your officers on the wrong
side of the bench.”
Bailey has also been a part-time officer in the Highland Falls Police
Department and she also faced similar charges with that union, according
to a person familiar with the situation.
