DA: Accountant stole about $150K from 80-year-old Greenport resident

A Nassau County accountant is scheduled to be arraigned today, Tuesday, on felony grand larceny charges, accused of stealing more than $150,000 from an 80-year-old Greenport resident suffering from dementia, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.

Scott J. Meyer, 46, of Seaford, was set to appear in First District Court in Central Islip on two felony counts of second-degree grand larceny, according to a DA spokesman, Bob Clifford.

Mr. Meyer, an accountant and partner with the Johnson & Meyer firm of Huntington, stole the money by either writing checks from the person’s account to himself, or transferred money directly into his own account, prosecutors said.

Someone who answered a phone call Tuesday to the Huntington firm declined to comment.
