Workers Surrender to Authorities in Mineola
MINEOLA — Fifteen Long Island Railroad workers turned themselves to authorities Friday after prosecutors said they conspired to steal more than $250,000 worth of copper wiring to resell at a scrap metal yard in Farmingdale. A two-year investigation by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority inspector general, the district attorney’s office, Nassau County police and MTA police revealed that the suspects who installed communication lines along the railroad tracks stole from railroad yards in Garden City, Brooklyn, Babylon and Queens.
