On Wednesday, Marilyn Golisano, 68, a former clerk for Boston Police Department’s District A-1 Detectives Unit was arrested.
Golisano was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count of embezzlement from an agency receiving federal funds, six counts of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.
Golisano, who handled the overtime paperwork for her unit, submitted dozens of false and fraudulent overtime slips on which she had forged the signatures of at least three different Boston Police supervisors.
During the period of the alleged fraud, Golisano’s overtime compensation from the Boston Police more than doubled, increasing from just over $15,000 in 2016 to $26,000 in 2017 and to over $33,000 in 2018.
Golisano is alleged to have stolen $11,094 from Boston Police in 2017 and $18,090 in 2018.
