Man who stole from state archives lands museum job


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - A man who did prison time for stealing hundreds of items from the New York State Archives has landed a job at the state's military museum, home to thousands of artifacts dating back to the Revolutionary War.
Former state archivist Daniel Lorello is working in the museum's book store, which is run by a volunteer support group. The Times Union of Albany first reported Lorello's hiring.
A spokesman for the Division of Military and Naval Affairs, which operates the museum, says the volunteer group staffs the book store. Messages left with the group weren't initially returned.
Lorello pleaded guilty to grand larceny in 2008. He admitted to a decade-long spree during which he stole artifacts and sold them on eBay.
Reached at the book store Tuesday, Lorello told The Associated Press he had no comment.
