SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say the former president of an upstate New York school board has been charged with stealing nearly $10,000 from a parent-teacher fund at one of the district’s elementary schools.

The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office says 42-year-old Charles “Chip” Locke was arrested Tuesday and charged with grand larceny and falsifying business records.

Investigators say he stole $9,973 from the Greenfield Elementary School Home/School Association during the past year while serving as the organization’s treasurer. The school is part of the Saratoga Springs public school district.

Locke, who lives in nearby Porter Corners, had been re-elected as school board president in July. District officials say he has resigned from the position.

Locke was arraigned in town court in neighboring Wilton. Court officials said Wednesday they didn’t have information on his attorney.
