A former YMCA employee used one of the non-profit’s credit cards to buy several power tools and stole a flat screen television before pawning the items around town, according to police.
Scott A. Browning, 23, allegedly bought $2,500 worth of various tools including drills, tool kits, a chainsaw and a cordless jigsaw from hardware stores between Nov.13 and Dec. 21 of last year, according to arrest warrants.
Police also said Browning was observed walking out of a YMCA with a 42-inch flat screen television worth $1,300, which he later pawned as well.
YMCA spokeswoman Jessica Fain confirmed that Browning worked at the downtown YMCA as part of the maintenance staff. He was terminated after the alleged incidents, and YMCA pressed charges against him.
Browning is charged with theft and credit card fraud. He is set to appear in court on March 17.
