The former general manager of the Rye Golf Club, who is accused of stealing more than $270,000 from the city through wages to workers he fabricated, was arraigned Tuesday on felony larceny charges, according to a statement from the Westchester County district attorney’s office.

Scott Yandrasevich, 49, of Danbury, Conn., faces a maximum of 15 years in prison following the charge of second-degree grand larceny, a class C felony, according to a press release issued on behalf of Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore.

Yandrasevich (pictured) funneled the funds over 4.5 years through a company called ‘RM Staffing,” from Jan. 21, 2008 to Aug. 16, 2012, then used the money himself, the DA’s office said.

“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,” the DA’s press release said.

In total, Yandrasevich stole $271,120 from the city-owned club, located on the Boston Post Road, the DA’s office said.

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

Bail was set at $20,000 bond or $10,000 cash. Yandrasevich is scheduled to appear Dec. 17. Assistant District Attorney Brian Conway, Deputy Chief of the Public Integrity Bureau is prosecuting the case.

but wasn't it sack that was the liaison between the club & the city? why pick on poor petey? why can't you have a normal conversation without mentioning these words: filing, damages, breach, negligence?

my sources tell me that club staffers had to ask POSL to stop cruising the club parking lot because it becoming a danger to the pedestrians. who was he stalking? was it just to kill time between litigation and hi-brow board meetings? maybe between seminars or lectures on how to wine friends and influence...???

Yandro was there stealing money way before 2012 no? I read 2006 or 2007. he got glowing reviews from all involved especially the city council (all of them). don't preach without all the facts. using just the details you want doesn't do your alma mater justice. granted he pulled the wool over on that one over and over. And what of this "your truly's" with the tips--word around the club was that POSL was the cheapest member around. maybe 7% tipper on a good day. unless one considers just being in his presence gratuity enuff. but as they say: That "PO"S"L" don't pay the bills...AND BREAKING NEWS why hasn't that been brought up? Is the waitstaff going to get their tips ever? what where they really making per hour? seems like exploitation to me! labor dept should be all over that no POSL?? Stick up for the small guys for once, the voiceless masses yearning to be free...DOHHH I should not have skipped that day of history class...
