A Queens man faces larceny charges after he tried to sell stolen Cablevision equipment in Lake Success, Nassau County Police said.
According to detectives, Bryan Urbano, 21, of Jamaica, was seen selling Cisco wifi transmitters that had fallen off the back of a Cablevision truck on the Long Island Expressway.
A subcontractor for Cablevision was driving west on the LIE near Exit 41 in Jericho when 24 Cisco Outdoor Mesh Access Point Wifi Transmitters fell off of the truck, cops said. Urbano reportedly stopped his car and picked up an unknown amount of the transmitters from the road and drove away, police reported.
On Monday, investigating officers said they saw Urbano allegedly complete a "hand to hand transaction" in Lake Success where he traded the transmitters for money.
Detectives recovered six of the missing transmitters, they said.
Cablevision and Second Squad detectives collaborated on the investigation.
Urbano is charged with third-degree grand larceny and third-degree criminal possession of stolen property. He will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
