Feds: Galeton Man Stole from Union

A Potter County man is accused of embezzling more than $6,000 from his union.

The US Attorney’s Office say 46-year-old Robert Vargeson of Galeton was responsible for the financial records for the local branch of Communications Workers of America and, during 2012 and 2013, he falsified those records to cover the theft of about $6,300.

If convicted, Vargeson faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $100,000 fine.
