Nyack Man Charged in $13,000 Unemployment Fraud

D.A.: General contractor was partner in a home improvement business as he filed for state benefits

A Nyack man is accused of fraudulently receiving $13,000 in unemployment benefits while he was working as a general contractor and was a partner in a home improvement business, according to Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe.

Andrew Naclerio, 48, of 81 Third Ave., Nyack, is charged with one count of grand larceny in the third degree, a class “D” felony, and one count of grand larceny in the fourth degree, a class “E” felony in connection with his filing for unemployment benefits between October 2010 and June 2011.

Naclerio’s arrest resulted from an investigation by the Rockland County Special Investigations state Department of Labor. Naclerio was arraigned in the Village of Nyack Justice Court by Judge Robert Lewis and was released on $1,000 bail. He is due to return to court on Sept. 22, 2011.

Zugibe said that on July 20, Naclerio was also arrested after cashing two checks totaling $1,500 at a local check-cashing establishment. Zugibe said is charged that Naclerio knew there were insufficient funds in the account to cover the checks.
