West Springfield man charged with stealing more than $70,000 from his employer


NORTHAMPTON, Massachusetts — A West Springfield man charged with stealing more than $70,000 from the electrical supply and lighting company where he once worked has pleaded not guilty.

Christopher Foley was arraigned Tuesday in Hampshire Superior Court on charges of larceny over $250 and making false entries in corporate books with intent to defraud.

Prosecutors say the 38-year-old Foley stole the money from Hampden Zimmerman Electric Supply Co. of Northampton between March 2009, and September 2012, while employed as manager of the store.

Foley's attorney, Thomas Kokonowski, tells The Daily Hampshire Gazette ( ) that his client denies the charges.

Foley was released and ordered to stay drug- and alcohol-free and submit to random screenings.
