A New Jersey man has been arrested on burglary and grand larceny charges for his role in duping a Glen Cove couple out of $50,000 in February, Glen Cove City police said Monday.
Tommy Marion, also known as Nicky Anderson, waived extradition after being found by law enforcement in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, on Monday, according to a news release from Glen Cove police.
He was arrested after a joint investigation by detectives from Glen Cove and Suffolk County, the NYPD’s Intelligence Unit and the NY/NJ Fugitive Task Force, the release said.
Marion was one of three men who posed as tree trimmers on Feb. 3, 2015, police said.
A Newsday story said as two men distracted a retired Glen Cove couple outside their home, one of them or another man took a safe containing $50,000 from the couple’s bedroom.
Marion, 39, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead on charges of second-degree burglary and third-degree grand larceny, police said.
