The Executive Officer of the Southern Tier Homebuilders and Remodelers Association is charged with grand larceny.

After allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from the organization.

Action News Reporter Caitlin Nuclo joined us from the live desk with the details of what led to the arrest.

Police say Rose Bowe allegedly purchased personal items with a credit card, and then submitted false invoices for reimbursement.

The 54-year-old, who is also known as CJ, was arrested this morning.

She is accused of stealing more than $32,000 from the organization, where she served as the Executive Officer since 2005.

The Homebuilders Associations board alerted Endicott police, which prompted the investigation.

It declined to speak with Action News on camera.

But the board did release a statement saying it has great respect for the judicial system and will let this run its course.

Bowe did not return our phone calls, or answer at her residence.

Endicott Police say they don't expect any additional charges.

Again, Bowe is facing a felony grand larceny charge.

She was arraigned in the Town of Union court and released.
