Lorello is now out of jail and has a new job: he runs the bookstore at the New York State Military Museum (pictured above), a state-owned facility located in Saratoga Springs that holds a vast collection of memorabilia dating from the Revolutionary War through modern times.
The New York State Military Museum holds uniforms, weapons, artillery pieces and art, much of it from the Civil War. It is the repository of the largest collection of state battle flags in the country and the biggest collection of Civil War flags in the world. The site boasts more than 6,000 photographs, unit history files, broadsides, scrapbooks, letters and maps highlighted by 2,300 Civil War photographs and newspaper clippings.
His new employers apparently were not aware of Lorello's criminal past until a newspaper reporter started asking questions. Admittedly, as store manager, Daniel Lorello shouldn't be handling the museum's collection.
Even though found guilty of stealing from his former employer, Lorello still receives an annual state pension of $26,000 plus whatever his salary is at the Saratoga Military Museum.
