A 48-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly stealing almost $30,000 in daycare payments he wasn't eligible to receive.
Curtis A. Parks, of Wappinger Falls, was arrested on Tuesday, Oct. 22, following an investigation by the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office in conjunction with the Department of Community and Family Services, said Capt. John Watterson.
According to Watterson, the investigation revealed that Parks allegedly illegally obtained $29,817 in daycare provider payments between October 2015 and May 2017 by failing to disclose past arrests that would have made him ineligible to receive payments.
Parks was charged with felony grand larceny and was released. He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 25.
