urlBarbara Dubois, age 48, of Nanuet, was charged last week with grand larceny in the second degree, a felony. The New City Library administrative assistant is accused of opening a false account and depositing public monies therein to the tune of $123,849.91.

District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe stated that the defendant opened a bank account in the name of EBCSO, a fictional corporation in June of 2013 at Sterling National Bank with herself as the sole signator on the account. Thereafter, between June 2013 and June 2015 Zugibe said she then systematically stole from New City Library by writing checks to EBCSO with the New City Library account and depositing them into her EBCSO account while still employed by the New City Library.

In total defendant deposited 13 checks and in doing so stole $123,849.91. New City Library does conduct business with an entity called EBSCO. The defendant switched the letters “s” and “c” when she opened this bank account under the fictional entity EBCSO in an effort to conceal her crime, the DA said.

The case is being prosecuted by Executive Assistant District Attorney Richard K. Moran.
