Greenwich police officer charged with Medicaid fraud

Posted: Updated:

A Greenwich police officer is charged with Medicaid fraud.

State prosecutors say 45-year-old Michael Mastronardi, of Shelton, billed Medicaid for work as a personal care assistant between 2014 and 2019. That includes time he was working for the police department.

The department put Mastronardi on administrative leave earlier this week when it was notified of the investigation. Mastronardi is free on bond and due in court Aug. 21.

Mastronardi was in the news in 2015 when he helped deliver a baby at the home of a woman who couldn't make it to the hospital. He's an 18-year veteran of the police force.
