MANAGER OF PHARMACY CHARGED WITH STEALING

AND RESELLING OVER $50K WORTH OF DIABETIC TEST STRIPS

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports that on February 28, 2019, Investigator Anthony Nappi, from the Sheriff’s Department Bureau of Criminal Investigations, arrested 32 year old Newburg resident, Aatif Ahmed Khan and charged him with Grand Larceny in the 2nd Degree, a Class C Felony. It is alleged that Khan, who, since 2015, had been the manager of the JNR Pharmacy in Brewster, ordered Diabetic Test Strips from Medical Supply Distributers on behalf of the Pharmacy and then resold them to various wholesalers and kept the money for himself.

The apparent theft came to light recently, after the owner and the bookkeeper conducted an inventory of the store, however, it appears that it had been an ongoing occurrence since 2017. It is alleged that over that two year period Mr. Khan stole and resold over $50,000 worth of Diabetic Test Strips.

Khan was arraigned in the Town of Southeast Justice Court by the Honorable Gregory Folchetti and remanded to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $1500 cash bail or $3000 bond.
