Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A former parts manager for Matthews Auto is arrested for allegedly bilking parts and money from the dealership.

Police said this took place throughout 2011 and 2012 when Paulhamus was the parts manager for Matthews Auto in Vestal and Norwich.

Paulhamus was charged with grand larceny in the third degree, a class D felony.

He was arraigned in Vestal Town Court and released pending further court action.
