`She was charged with second-degree grand larceny and third-degree grand larceny.
Police said they were told that a female employee, later identified as Gomez, worked as the office administrator for St. Williams to Abbot Roman Catholic Church. She also worked for the Diocese of Rockville Center.

The losses totaled more than $400,000 and dated to 2019, police said.
