A Barnum Island man was arrested Monday and charged with stealing more than $125,000 worth of cardboard bales meant for recycling from a Lawrence supermarket, Nassau police said.

Warren Parke, 64, of 217 Kingston Blvd., was charged with second degree grand larceny, two counts of third degree criminal mischief, and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
