DA Says Putnam Man Stole Mount Kisco Meter Money

A Mount Kisco parking enforcement officer was arrested today as he left a bank after depositing money from village parking meters, Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced. 

Jeffrey Daday was arraigned May 6 on one count of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, a class “C” felony.

Daday,  of 12 Hermitage Road, worked from Jan. 5, 2009 to May 6, 2014 as a Parking Enforcement Officer for the village of Mount Kisco.

The DA alleges that Daday emptied the meters and deposited part of the proceeds into his bank account at the local branch of People’s United Savings Bank on Moger Avenue in the village.

At this point, investigators believe the total amount of the larceny is in excess of $89,000, the DA said.

Mount Kisco police were alerted to the thefts and along with investigators from the District Attorney’s office initiated a surveillance of the defendant over a period of time.

Daday, 35, was confronted earlier today as he left the bank branch after making a deposit and subsequently arrested.

He was arraigned and released without bail. He faces a maximum sentence of fifteen years in prison. 

His next court appearance will be May 8.

Assistant District Attorney Steven Ronco of the Public Integrity Bureau is prosecuting the case.

This guy is really from the Putnam Lake area of Southeast, Thankfully not a resident of the Village of Brewster.

Hi John D, I'm intrigued by this comment and curious about your intent in posting it. Also, just so you know, Putnam Lake is in Patterson, not Southeast.

Hi Carolyn, thanks for your reply. I tend to think people read 'Brewster' and think of the Village, of which I'm a mostly happy and proud resident. The Putnam community tends to equate the Village with crime and general stupidity, and I'd simply like to point out that this criminal is NOT a resident of the Village, but a resident of Patterson as you rightly point out. My ulterior motive here is that it's more difficult to rent out an apartment with the unfair reputation the Village receives, but that's a debate for another comment section perhaps.

Thanks, all, for the clarification about his home community. The headline has been modified.

Hi John Thank you for clarifying - it's so unfortunate that we feel we need to 'defend' our communities based on the actions of individuals who happen to reside in them. Especially when the actions occur outside our communities. These kinds of stories don't help, I know! The court of public opinion is sometimes more vicious than the court of law itself.
