Two former Cablevision employees who falsified records on their corporate accounts face grand larceny charges, authorities said Wednesday.
The two purchased personal items on their business accounts between September 2015 and March without the company’s permission, and then falsified receipts to make them appear as legitimate purchases, Nassau County police said.
“While we do not comment on specific personnel matters, this isolated incident was identified by the company and turned over to the proper authorities,” Cablevision said in a statement. Newsday is owned by Cablevision.
Each man was arrested after an internal investigation, police said.
Eugene Mishkevich, 38, of Coachman Place East, Syosset, made purchases of $54,374, police said. He was arrested Tuesday on a charge of second-degree grand larceny and was arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead, police said.
His bail was set at a $7,500 bond or $5,000 cash, according to online court records. His lawyer, Peter Brill, said his client pleaded not guilty.
Lukasz Gogolewski, 37, of 74th Street, Middle Village, Queens, made purchases of $15,000 and was arraigned April 19 on a charge of third-degree grand larceny, police said.
Gogolewski was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court on May 12, according to court records.
John Carman, his attorney, said Gogolewski was not required to enter a plea.
