Former Treasurer Of Volunteer Ambulance Corps In Connecticut Accused Of Embezzling More Than $100K
Frederick Seremet, 59, of Newington, Connecticut, was charged yesterday with embezzling more than $100,000 from the town's volunteer ambulance corps for which he had served as treasurer. According to prosecutors, from early 2005 through late 2008, Seremet allegedly "misdirected" a significant amount of funds from the non-profit organization, in excess of $100,000. The nature of Seremet's misappropriation has not been revealed. However, he has been charged with first-degree larceny and 40 counts of second-degree forgery, suggesting he issued checks to himself or to personal vendors.
