State Comptroller DiNapoli Statement on Former Mahopac Fire Official Guilty Plea

"Michael Klein started stealing from the public just after he was appointed treasurer at the Mahopac Fire Department. He used his $5.7 million embezzlements to buy a yacht, a Mercedes, a Corvette, and Pandora jewels for his wife. My ongoing partnerships with U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, the New York State Police, the IRS and FBI brought Mr. Klein to justice today with his guilty plea. Klein will be ordered to repay the $5.7 million and is going to federal prison for his crimes."
