Following a lengthy investigation, Ithaca Police investigators arrested Kerri Rhodes on July 9 for Grand Larceny in the third degree and falsifying business records in the first degree. Both are felony-level charges. According to a press release, this arrest came from investigators identifying numerous incidents of theft occurring from October 2017 through January 2018.
In this time, Rhodes falsified business records of her place of employment, a local Ithaca business, and embezzled over $3,000 dollars. She was arraigned on both charges and released on her own recognizance. The Ithaca Police Department is encouraging all community members to contact them if anyone suspects a crime is occurring within the City of Ithaca.
