The New York State Police arrested a woman on Dec. 6 for stealing more than $1 million from a roofing business.
According to a statement from the New York State Police, Jeanne Parr, 53, from Groton, N.Y., is being charged with first-degree grand larceny and first-degree falsifying business records. Both are felonious charges.
The arrest is the culmination of a yearlong investigation after the owner of JD Ferro Roofing in Cortland discovered that Parr was stealing company funds for several years. The investigation found that Parr stole an excess of $1 million from the roofing company and falsified business records to cover up the theft.
Parr was transported to Cortland County Jail to await arraignment.
