      Former Jordan-Elbridge School District Athletic Director, Eric M. Varney, was arrested Thursday for grand larceny.

      The 44 year-old was charged following an investigation into the theft of $12,729 from the admissions fund of the Jordan-Elbridge School District.

      Troopers say the money was taken between the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 school years while Varney served as Athletic Director.

      Varney was arraigned before Town of Elbridge Justice Mitchell and released on his own recognizance.
