HOOSICK, N.Y. – The Town of Hoosick Supervisor was arrested by State Police Brunswick Friday, after he allegedly filed false information with a bank in his capacity as supervisor.
Town of Hoosick Supervisor Keith Cipperly was arrested and charged with Official Misconduct and Falsifying Business Records in the second-degree.
According to State Police, the charges stem from an incident where Cipperly filed papers with a bank, in his capacity as Supervisor of the Town of Hoosick, regarding a real estate transaction. The papers allegedly contained false information.
NEWS10 ABC attempted to speak with Cipperly about his arrest, but he said he couldn't talk and to contact his lawyer. Cipperly's lawyer did not return any calls to NEWS10 ABC.
Hoosick Deputy Supervisor Jeff Wysocki said he knew about the arrest but had no further comment on the issue. Calls to town council members also went unreturned.
Cipperly will serve as town supervisor for one more month as he was voted out of the position during the last election. He will appear in court on December 5.
