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.
According to State Police, Hoosick Town Supervisor Keith Cipperly gave false information during a loan application, and according the Rensselaer County District Attorney's office it involved the name of another town official.
"Well I found out when somebody called me and said it was on Facebook and then I called Keith," said Jeff Wysocki, deputy supervisor of Hoosick.
Wysocki says Cipperly eventually returned his calls.
"Then I did get ahold of him later, and he said it had nothing to do with the town board," he said.
It does not have to do with the town board, but according to Rensselaer County District Attorney Richard McNally, it does involve the name of the town building inspector. McNally says it's alleged that Cipperly, while attempting to obtain a bank loan, filled out a FHA application to satisfy requirements of a well and septic system. But he allegedly wrote a letter representing something that had been done by Hoosick building inspector that hadn't actually been done.
In fact, McNally says the act that was said to have been completed is something that is usually handled by the Health Department and not the building inspector.
NEWS10 ABC attempted to speak with Cipperly about his arrest on Saturday, but he said he couldn't talk and to contact his lawyer. Cipperly's lawyer declined to comment Monday.
Cipperly is set to appear in Hoosick Town Court next week.
