Alfred Housing Director removed, arrested by NYS Police for Grand Larceny


All those arrested are considered innocent until proven guilty in court

By Andrew Harris

From the surface it appears to be a classic case of embezelling funds from an employer. A Wellsville woman was charged with grand larceny and terminated as the Executive Director of Alfred Housing Inc. Details are limited as with most ongoing investigations.

What we can tell you:

  • Allison Green, 40, of Wellsville was arrested for felony Grand Larceny in the 2nd degree(over $50,000) by New York State Police on March 13th. She was issued an appearance ticket for a later date in court.
  • Her employer, Alfred Housing Committee Inc., has issued this statement through board member Robert Sobeck:

“This is a personnel issue; The board of directors terminated her employment with Alfred Housing Committee. Audit to follow. Please let the legal system play out.”

  • Mayor Randy Shayler refused to make any comment other than to stress that no village funds are involved and the village relationship with Alfred Housing Committee Inc. is not involved in this investigation.

Alfred Housing Committee Inc, oversees the Village of Wellsville’s small business revolving loan fund for a management fee, never actually handling loan funds or payments. The two entities are both tenants of the newly renovated 23 North Main Street Property.

Green was the Executive Director of Alfred Housing Committee Inc., who co-owns and manages five Wellsville properties: 23 North Main Street(formerly the Burrous Building,) Carpentener Commons, Gardner Hieghts, Wellsville Woods, and Highland Pointe. Learn more:

No comment was provided by Green, updates will be published as additional information is available.
