Former parks employee admits stealing gas from county

A former Erie County employee pleaded guilty to one count of petit larceny in Elma Town Court for stealing from the county.

Dennis J. Mager, 62, of Townline Road in Alden, admitted that on Oct. 28, 2014 he stole gasoline for his personal use when he had access to county gas pumps in Elma as part of his job. He was employed as a maintenance worker with the county Parks Department at the time.

The plea was accepted last week by Justice Robert J. Pierce. Sentencing is set for Sept. 14.
