NEW YORK (AP) -

A cashier at a New York state park in upper Manhattan has been accused of stealing $75,000 worth of fees from the cash register.

Fatima Cooper, 47, was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of second-degree grand larceny.

State Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott said that between 2009 and 2011 Cooper pocketed fees at Riverbank State Park, a 28-acre park built on top of a sewage treatment facility on the Hudson River.

The park charges fees for use of the pool, the ice skating rink, picnic tables and other facilities.

Cooper is due back in court Thursday. The name of her attorney was not immediately available.
