RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Ramapo's chief building inspector has been charged with a 100 felony counts claiming he gave contractors extra-low fees, costing the town, and taxpayers more than $100,000, according to lohud.com.

Anthony Mallia, of Airmont, was arrested Thursday night for a scheme that included falsifying building permits and undercharging builders for permits, Rockland District Attorney Thomas Zugibe charged, said lohud.com.

The amount is based on the estimated cost of 33 new construction projects that broke ground during 2015, added lohud.com.

Zugibe said the scheme carried out by Mallia compromised public safety. Rockland District Attorney's Office detectives reviewed Ramapo Building Department records to make the case, but the investigators did not find any proof that Mallia himself profited from the scheme, said lohud.com.

Mallia was charged with one count of grand larceny and 33 counts each of tampering with public records, falsifying business records and offering a false instrument for filing. He also is charged with misdemeanor official misconduct and theft of services.

He was arrested at his home and was released after posting $15,000 bail, said lohud.com.
