BRONX, NY — Two custodians from the Bronx are accused of scamming the city out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to The New York Times.
The custodians are accused of creating phony jobs and using school money to pay non-existent workers to maintain private properties, the article noted.
According to Richard J. Condon, the special commissioner of investigation, the supposed scheme, allegedly run by Trifon Radef and Nicanor Fernandez, took place between the years of 2007 and 2010.
The scheme indicated an extreme lack of supervision of custodians in the Bronx during that period, the article stated.
Radef, a full-time custodian at the Theodore Roosevelt Educational Campus in the Bronx was also on the books as a part-time night custodian at Harry S. Truman High School; however, Radef rarely showed up for this job, the article added.
