ALBANY – An Albany County man stole nearly $1 million from an Albany Polish club, including money dedicated for donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, police said.
Kenneth Frodyma, 38, of Fuera Bush, was arrested Thursday and charged with one count of second-degree grand larceny, a felony.
He is accused of taking more than $900,000 from the Polish American Citizen’s Club, where he was a member and served as the organization’s financial secretary, from September 2019 through the end of 2021, police said.
Frodyma made multiple withdrawals in that time frame from four separate accounts belonging to the organization, including a dedicated account used to raise funds and provide an annual donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, police said.
During those transactions, Frodyma withdrew the cash for his own personal use, police said.
Frodyma was arraigned Thursday and released to return to court later.
