CORAM, N.Y. – A suburban New York community was shocked to learn that hundreds of thousands of dollars in Bingo proceeds intended for the disabled have disappeared, the New York Post reported.
An employee who recently resigned from the charity and her boss are accusing each other of having a hand in the half-million-dollar heist that stole from the Long Island not-for-profit organization the Suffolk Independent Living Organization.
The employee, Sverna Bradley, and Edward Ahern, executive director of the charity, are accusing each other of taking $10,000.
Bradley refused to comment but Ahern defended himself to wcbs.com.
"Of course, I never took any money," he said. "I spent 45 minutes in Walgreen's last night shopping for the 10-cent sales. I would never steal from my own people."
Town Supervisor Brian Foley said there appeared to be large differences between the agency’s reported Bingo income and the actual monies received.
