A Katonah man was arrested after he illegally used the Katonah Fire District credit card to purchase gas three times, police said.
The unauthorized use of the credit card was reported to Bedford Police by Katonah fire officials on Dec. 13. Michael Pastore, 31, a member of the fire department not authorized to use the credit card, was identified as a suspect.
Officers pulled over Pastore, 31, at 12:15 a.m. on Dec. 15 for a traffic stop after he failed to signal a turn. After identifying the driver, police brought him to headquarters for processing.
Pastore was charged with three counts of petty larceny for purchasing the gas, and three counts of second degree criminal impersonation for the use of the card, all misdemeanors. He was also charged with failure to signal. He was released without bail pending a return to town court.
Pastore, a former Bedford Hills business owner was arrested twice last year. In Nov. 2011, he faced harassment and stalking charges related to unwanted communications with an ex-girlfriend and before that, was charged with operating a car with a suspended registration and a plate violation.
