A former Johnson City Eagles Club Trustee is accused of stealing close to $50,000 from the fraternal organization over the course of three years.

Johnson City Police say 64 year old Earl Leudecke is charged with felony grand larceny.

The Johnson City man reportedly stole 49-thousand, 895 dollars between June 7, 2011 and March 1 of this year from the club, located on Willow Street.

The group discovered the missing funds following Leudecke’s resignation on March 4th.

The Eagles issued a statement that said Leudecke had been a member for over 30 years.

He was released following his arraignment to await action in Broome County Court.
