N.Y. Woman Stole $400,000 From State-Funded Agency

A Long Island woman faces theft charges and 114 counts of forgery after she embezzled more than $400,000 from an area social services organization, police said.

After a 10-month investigation, police arrested Michelle Labrec, 52, of Ronkonkoma, N.Y. Wednesday and charged her with first-degree larceny, first-degree identity theft and 114 counts of second-degree forgery, they said. She was released from custody on a promise to appear in Superior Court in Rockville Oct. 6.

Labrec is the former manager of accounts payable at Allied Community Resources in East Windsor, an organization that helps people with disabilities. She lived in Coventry at the time of the thefts, Chief Mark Palmer said Thursday.

She stole more than $400,000 in funds that had been allocated by the state Department of Social Services, Palmer said.

Officer Brian Flanagan conducted the investigation, he said.
