Olean man arrested for grand larceny, filing a false instrument

On May 28, 2019, SP Olean Troopers arrested Mark E. Barber, 50, of Olean, NY for Grand Larceny 3rd Degree and Filing a False Instrument 1st Degree.

An investigation which began in April 2019 led Troopers to discover Barber had filed false paperwork with the New York State Department of Labor, by which he obtained $9,226.25 of unemployment benefits to which he was not entitled.

Barber was arrested and arraigned in Olean City Court where he was released on his own recognizance. He is due to return to that court in July.
