Upstate NY mayor stole 111 road signs from the DOT
FRANKFORT, N.Y. (AP) -- State police say an upstate New York mayor illegally provided his village with 111 road signs belonging to the state Department of Transportation.
Sixty-year-old Frank Moracco was charged Monday with official misconduct and petit larceny. Investigators say Moracco works as a sign shop foreman for the DOT. He's accused of stealing the signs and giving them to the Herkimer County village of Frankfort.
Village clerk Karlee Tamburro tells The Observer-Dispatch of Utica that Moracco will continue to serve as mayor and the Mohawk Valley village isn't commenting on the charges. Moracco couldn't be reached at his office.
