COOPERSTOWN – A former employee of a Springfield convenience store was arrested and charged with stealing over $2,000 from the register, according to the Village Police.

Brandon Charles Demorest, 26, of Springfield Center was arrested Jan. 11 on charges that he had used the error/correct key to void out sales and keep the money customers paid for their purchases while employed at the store in summer 2015, said village police in a press release.

 An accounting revealed that $2,435.89 was missing, and during an interview with police, Demorest confessed to stealing the money and causing false entries in the store’s business records to conceal the larceny, according to police.  

Demorest was charged with grand larceny in the fourth degree, a class E felony, and falsifying business records in the first degree, a class E felony.  He was issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to return to the Town of Otsego Court on Feb. 17.

If convicted of the charges, Demorest faces up to four years in the state prison.
