Frankfort Village Mayor Frank Morraco faces criminal charges for allegedly stealing 111 road signs from the New York State Department of Transportation. Morraco was arrested on charges of misconduct and petit larceny—both charges are Class A misdemeanors.
Morraco has worked as a sign shop foreman for the New York State Department of Transportation since 2001. According to the Utica Observer-Dispatch he is believed to have given the 111 stolen signs to the Village of Frankfort Street Department:
“There were a variety of signs, including yield and stop signs,” Keller told HuffPost. “A village usually has to apply to get signs and then pay a fee. [Moracco] bypassed that process.”
