Troop C Commander


On July 27, 2020 at approximately 10:00 a.m., New York State Police at Ithaca arrested Lorraine A. Evans, age 53 of Alpine, NY for the felonies of Forgery in the second degree and Grand Larceny in the fourth degree. 

An investigation began in 2019 after a business owner from the town of Ulysses discovered that Evans was stealing money and writing checks without the owner’s consent.  The investigation revealed that over $12,000 was taken over a period of several months while Evans was working as a bookkeeper for the business.

An investigator made contact with Evans and she responded to SP Ithaca where she was arrested.  She was arraigned virtually and scheduled to appear in the town of Ulysses court in August.
