A former custodian at an Upper West Side high school pled guilty for defrauding the city of more than $100,000.

District Attorney Cyrus Vance announced Philip Portelli, a 33-year-old former custodian at Edward A. Reynolds West Side High School, pled guilty to running a “no-show job scheme.”

Portelli, who lives on 355 E. 88th St. and First Avenue, submitted time sheets to the Department of Education on behalf of a friend that did not work at the school, located on 140 W. 102nd St. and Amsterdam Avenue. The time sheets totaled nearly $105,000. The Department of Education recouped the loss.

Portelli was charged with a count of grand larceny in the third degree.
