The former parts manager for a Broome and Chenango County auto dealer is charged with grand larceny.

Vestal Police say 36 year old Dale Paulhamus of Newark Valley worked for Matthews Auto in Vestal and Norwich.

He is accused of ordering parts, creating fictitious purchase orders and charging them to the dealership between 2011 and last year. Police say Paulhamus then allegedly either used the parts himself or sold them.

He was released pending future court action.
