THE BRONX - The former executive director of a Bronx nonprofit has been arrested for allegedly stealing from the charity.
Yolanda Gonzalez was walked from the 44th Precinct in handcuffs after sources say she stole from Nos Quedamos, an organization that was started by her own mother.
According to sources, Gonzalez was removed from her position when accusations first surfaced back in 2011. The attorney general says Joseph Ingenito, the charity’s former CFO, was also arrested for helping her cover up the theft.

Investigators say she looted the nonprofit of close to $900,000.
Gonzalez is facing felony grand larceny charges and could get up to 15 years in prison. Ingenito faces up to four years for allegedly falsifying business records.
