RYE, N.Y. -- The former general manager of the Rye Golf Club was sentenced to up to three years in prison on Thursday for stealing more than a quarter of a million dollars over a four-year period, according to Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore.
Scott Yandrasevich, a 51-year-old Danbury resident, knowingly submitted false invoices to the City of Rye for fictitious employees which allowed him to steal $271,120, the district attorney said.
Yandrasevich accomplished this by setting up and effectively controlling a staffing company called RM Staffing for the purposes of billing the City of Rye for services provided to the Club, the district attorney said.
Once RM Staffing was paid for the services of the fictitious employees, Yandrasevich would transfer the money back to himself, the district attorney said.
The Rye Police Department became aware of financial irregularities, hired outside counsel who further investigated and forwarded those findings to the District Attorneys office.
