May 9, 2014 -- Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced that Scott Yandrasevich (DOB 2/25/1964) of 11 Abbey Lane, Danbury, Connecticut, was arraigned today on an eleven-count indictment charging him with:

  • one count of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, a class “C” Felony,
  • ten counts of Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree, class “E” Felonies.

Between April 10, 2007 and Aug. 20, 2012, the defendant, who was the General Manager of the Rye Golf Club, located at 330 Boston Post Road, in Rye, New York, stole approximately $342,120 from the Club and the City of Rye by knowingly submitting false invoices to the City of Rye for fictitious employees over this approximate four and a half year period.

The club is a Rye City owned non-equity membership club.

The defendant accomplished this larceny 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 defendant submitted false bi-weekly invoices on RM Staffing stationary listing individual(s) who were falsely described as working in “Administration,” “Restaurant” and/or “Operations” at the Club, when in fact no such person(s) worked for the Club.

In total, these fraudulent invoices were submitted during a span of over one hundred pay periods and the City of Rye paid out approximately $342,120 to RM Staffing for these fictional services.

After RM Staffing received these stolen monies, said stolen monies were ultimately transferred back to the defendant, who used said funds for his own personal use.

The City became aware of financial irregularities, hired outside counsel who further investigated and forwarded those findings to the District Attorneys office.

Bail was continued at $10,000 cash or bond.

The defendant’s next court date is May 21, 2014.

He faces a maximum sentence of fifteen years in state prison.

Assistant District Attorney Brian Conway, Deputy Chief of the Public Integrity Bureau is prosecuting the case.
