GOSHEN, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a couple from South Carolina has been charged with stealing tens of thousands of dollars from two upstate New York hardware stores where they used to work.

New York State Police announced Wednesday that Lawrence Sienko and Nadine Sienko were arraigned Tuesday in Orange County Court in Goshen on grand larceny charges. Nadine Sienko was also charged with falsifying business records.

Police say the Sienkos used to live in Middletown, New York, and were found living in Summerville, South Carolina.

Authorities say their investigation started in December 2013 when the couple was employed at a hardware store in Goshen and another store in Middletown. Police say the Sienkos stole more than $85,000 from the stores from early 2011 through late 2013.

It couldn't be determined if the Sienkos have lawyers who could comment on the charges.
