A former Levittown School District employee was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly stealing $3,500 worth of camera equipment when he was employed as the Director of Computer and Media Services.
Police said that Ronald E. Kister, 37, of Sayville,
had an employee order camera equipment worth over $3,500. Kister then told the employee that the equipment was for
another employee of the school district, and when the equipment arrived in
early September of 2012, Kister removed it from
the building, police said.
A short time later, police said that Kister left his position at the school
district, and in early October 2012, another employee inquired about the
equipment and discovered it was missing.
The investigation by police revealed that
Kister had given the equipment to a female
friend as a gift. Police said Kister was located and placed under arrest without
incident, and the equipment was recovered.
Kister is being charged with fourth degree grand larceny and official misconduct. He was issued an appearance ticket and
will respond to First District Court on Friday, Dec. 7.
