A former groundskeeper at Lakeview Cemetery, accused of writing more than $58,000 worth of checks to himself and selling or giving away equipment, was indicted by a Tompkins County grand jury last week.
Scott E. Goodrich, 51, of Ithaca, is the former president and caretaker of the cemetery. He was arrested on Feb. 18, 2014 on a charge of second-degree grand larceny, accused of writing himself checks totaling $58,517 and selling or giving away the cemetery's equipment between February and December of 2013, according to court documents. He was indicted on that charge Thursday.
