SYRACUSE, NY -- The president of the Syracuse/Onondaga chapter of the NAACP is facing grand larceny charges for allegedly stealing nearly $55,000 from CNY Pop-Warner Football and Cheerleading where he served as treasurer, :paccording to New York State Police.

Preston B. Fagan, 64, of 3901 Bufflehead Lane, Clay was arrested Jan. 8 after a six-month investigation into the missing money, said State Police spokesman Jack Keller. Keller said Fagan made 56 unauthorized transactions totaling $54,015.

Fagan returned $33,000 of the money taken, Keller said.

Fagan could not immediately be reached for comment. An Internet archive search revealed that Fagan was replaced as treasurer on the local Pop-Warner board page in August 2015.

In addition to the former treasurer of the organization, Fagan is the president of the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, according to the organization's website.
