A City of Tonawanda man faces up to seven years in prison after admitting to stealing more than $40,000 from his employer.
Robert Kirisits, 53, pleaded guilty to grand larceny, identity theft and forgery.
Between July 2013 and July 2015, Kiristis stole $41,236.18 from Transpo Bus Services by diverting checks into his personal bank account and writing unauthorized checks to cash, according to the Erie County District Attorney's office.
Kirisits, manager of the City of Tonawanda business, also used the personal identifying information of the bus company’s owner to obtain a $100,000 loan and forged the owner’s signature on the loan application, the District Attorney's office said.
Erie Supreme Court Judge John L. Michalski scheduled sentenced for Nov. 9.
