Forgery charges at Md. alarm company

The chief financial officer of a Hagerstown burglar-alarm company faces allegations he stole more than $100,000 from his employer.

A judge set Curtis Pietro's bond at $100,000 Friday. Pietro appeared at the hearing without a lawyer.

The charges involve Glessner Alarm & Communications. The company serves thousands of households in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia.

Company President Neal Glessner says the firm discovered financial irregularities and shared them with law enforcement.

A Washington County grand jury indicted Pietro on Tuesday on charges he forged checks on Glessner's bank accounts from June 2006 through September 2009, and again from March through June of this year.
