A Hyde Park man is behind bars without bail after being arrested for stealing more than $30,000 from a Poughkeepsie business.
Dennis C. Morgan was arrested Thursday, Jan. 11, following an investigation by the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department after receiving a complaint from a local business of missing funds, said Capt. Kevin Faber.
The theft took place over a five-month period in 2017 while Morgan was employed as the company's controller, Faber said.
Police declined to name the business.
Records show that a Dennis Morgan at the same address was also arrested in 2014 by Ulster town police and was charged with two counts of grand larceny for allegedly stealing a credit card from the business he worked for and then used the card to make $4,000 in purchases.
