Councilman, Samuel Tress Arrested

RAMAPO – Yesterday afternoon, councilman Samuel Tress was arrested. The councilman who sits on the Zoning Board of Appeals had signed an affidavit confirming that he would not profit from his decisions while on the board. It was discovered that he had voted to support a zoning change on a housing development where he holds a financial interest. According to the Rockland District Attorney’s Office, Tress (71), holds a prior felony conviction for federal mail fraud, and now faces a felony charge of first-degree offering a false instrument and a misdemeanor count of official misconduct. He has pleaded “not guilty” after being led in handcuffs into the courtroom of Justice Daniel Goldman. He was released without bail.
