A Bellmore man was arrested and charged with criminal possession of stolen property after police said he sold stolen jewelry and electronic devices to dealers on Christmas Eve.
Nassau County police Burglary Pattern Team detectives and Garden City police said Brian Tierney, 23, of Henry Street, was arrested Tuesday at 6:50 p.m. after being located on Ring Road in Garden City.
Tierney was charged with third-degree criminal possession of stolen property and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. He faces arraignment Wednesday in First District Court in Hempstead, police said.
Police said that on Dec. 24 Tierney sold four watches valued at about $4,700 to Collectors Coin & Jewelry on Sunrise Highway in Massapequa Park, then sold about $1,500 worth of unspecified “electronic devices” to a PayMore store on nearby Broadway.
Police said the items were determined to be proceeds from the burglary of a home on St. James Street in Garden City on Dec. 23 — and said the subsequent investigation led them to Tierney.
