ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York officials have accused a Rochester business executive of stealing $75,000 from the company where he formerly worked and a local development corporation through false invoices.

The Attorney General's Office says its probe stemmed from an audit of Upstate Telecommunications Corp., which contracts to upgrade Monroe County's computer and copier systems.

Authorities say 50-year-old Daniel Lynch, a former Siemens Building Technologies sales executive, is charged with grand larceny and falsifying business records.

He pleaded not guilty and was released without bail.

He is accused of causing Toshiba Business Solutions to submit invoices to Siemens to help fund a tent at the 2008 Senior PGA Championship tournament at the Oak Hill Country Club that indicated they were for a UTC copier project.

Calls to Lynch's attorney were not immediately returned.
