Gates, N.Y. --- A Gates fire dispatcher is facing criminal charges for allegedly padding his overtime hours.

The nine-year veteran was arraigned on 269 criminal charges Tuesday afternoon. New York State Police have charged Stephen Leuchtner with Grand Larceny, Falsifying Business Records , and 267 counts of Offering a False Instrument for Filing.

The charges stem from false timesheets that he allegedly submitted beginning in January 2008 through August of this year. Leuchtner is accused of stealing more than $65,800 over that period of time.

He pleaded not guilty Tuesday after turning himself in. He is due back in court January 2nd.
