RAMAPO - A Rockland grand jury has returned a 188-count indictment against the chief building inspector in the town of Ramapo.

Anthony Mallia, 52, of Airmont, is accused of grand larceny, falsifying business records and misconduct in office.

Prosecutors say he grossly undercharged contractors for building permit applications for new residential construction projects in 2015. He is also accused of filing phony records with Ramapo's building department, short-changing the town of $150,000 in fees.

Mallia was arrested in September and is on paid administrative leave.

If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison.
