NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A parking meter officer in Westchester is accused of siphoning more than $89,000 in coins from meters over a five-year period, according to prosecutors.

Authorities charged Jeffrey Daday, 35, of Brewster, N.Y., with second-degree grand larceny, a felony, on Tuesday, according to District Attorney Janet DiFiore. Daday works as a parking enforcement officer for Mount Kisco.

Between January 5, 2009, and May 6, 2014, Daday would empty parking meters around town and then deposit some of the coins into his own account at a local bank branch, according to the DA.

Police and the DA's office began investigating recently and kept watch on Daday for a while, authorities said. On Tuesday, investigators confronted him as he left his bank after allegedly making a deposit, prosecutors said.

Daday was arrested, arraigned, and released. He is due back in court Thursday.

$89,000 is 356,000 quarters or 890,000 dimes or 1.78 million nickels.
