RENSSELAER COUNTY - In Rensselaer County, bail is set for the former CEO of a local drug treatment program.

Dennis Bassat is accused of stealing at least $200,000 from the non profit center run by Father Peter Young.

He had worked there for nearly 25 years.

Today, a judge ruled that his out of state ties could make him a flight risk.

Bail was therefore set at $250,000.
