Cash switch brings 5 years of probation

LITTLE VALLEY -- A former clerk at the Olean Bon-Ton store was sentenced Monday in Cattaraugus County Court to probation for switching fake money for real money.

Brett L. Anderson, 30, of Olean, was sentenced by Judge Larry M. Himelein to five years' probation, including 100 hours of community service, and $1,000 restitution for his guilty plea to first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.
