former harvard assistant football coach arraigned on grand larceny charges for restaurant receipts theft

 

 

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced today that Evan Loring (DOB 06/22/84) of 4 Vaz Place, Wallingford, Connecticut was arraigned on a Felony Complaint charging him with:

 

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

 

for stealing more than $50,000 in cash from a Port Chester restaurant where he was the assistant manager.

 

In March of 2011, the defendant was hired as a bartender at Bar Taco, a restaurant located at 1 Willett Avenue in Port Chester, New York, after being released from his job as an assistant football coach at Harvard University.

 

Loring was promoted from bartender to assistant manager.

 

Beginning in October of 2011 and continuing until April of 2012, the defendant accessed the restaurant’s computerized sale system and began removing items from customer’s orders, thereby changing the cash receipt amount.

 

The defendant pocketed approximately $80,000 in a five month period and falsified business records to try and hide his theft.

 

In March of this year, the restaurant contacted Port Chester Police and an investigation began with the assistance of the Economic Crimes Bureau of the Investigations Division of the District Attorney’s Office.

 

Bail was set at $5,000 cash or bond.

 

The defendant’s next court date is October 11, 2012.

 

He faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in state prison if convicted.

 

Assistant District Attorney Robert Mayes of the Economic Crimes Bureau is prosecuting the case.
