Employee Accused of Stealing $40K From Ridgewood YMCA, Police Say

The bookkeeper from Mahwah allegedly diverted Y funds for her own use, police said.

A Ridgewood YMCA bookkeeper was arrested last week after allegedly stealing $40,000 from the community institution, Ridgewood Police announced in a release Thursday morning.

According to police, Catherine Easer, 54, of Mahwah, allegedly diverted YMCA funds and took about $40,000 for her own personal use.

About two months ago, Y officials alerted police to account discrepancies and a possible theft, police said. After Ridgewood Detective Jeffrey Casson conducted a two-month investigation, cops arrested Easer on April 10, and charged her with third degree theft, police said.

Easer has since been released, police said.

Does or will she have to pay back a token amount like our parking meter thief?

Probably not. Stealing in Ridgewood N.J. Is not a crime.

Seems to be part of the job description.
