Cheektowaga store manager charged with stealing from business

An employee of a Cheektowaga carpet and flooring store has been charged with stealing more than $18,000 from his employer, town police said Thursday.

Cheektowaga Police have charged Bradley R. Pilarski, 37, of Depew, with third-degree grand larceny.

Pilarski, a manager at The Flooring Fanatic on Harlem Road, stole customers’ payments and deleted invoices so the owner had no trace of the transactions, police said.

Pilarski also would give customers “special discounts” that he had no authorization to make, keep the sales secret and keep the money for himself, according to police.

The thefts occurred over the last several months, and police are looking to speak with anyone who may know about any other illegal transactions Pilarski may have been involved with.

Anyone with information should call Det. Donald Strozyk at 686-3548.
