bmaDwight Newton was arrested yesterday for stealing over $620,000 from the Brooklyn Museum, and is now facing “fraud charges for drafting 38 bogus electronic checks between April 2005 and December 2005.” The former payroll manager deposited the museum’s money into a joint account with his detective wife, who was apparently unaware of the crime. |NYP|
