Toilet, action figures, women's shoes among Great Neck man's booty from Queens home thefts, says Queens DA

The Queens district attorney's office has charged a Great Neck man with stealing packages containing items ranging from a toilet to action figures from six homes in Queens between April and June.

Prosecutors said Yosef A. Loulai, 37, of Maple Street in Great Neck, was seen on security cameras walking up to a home April 1 on 179th Street in Fresh Meadows and stealing a package of women's shoes valued at $111 from the doorstep.

Other charges include going to a home three blocks down the street later that same day and stealing a package including a bread maker, an acupuncture book and a pain relief mat, all valued at $140, prosecutors said in a release.

According to the complaint, Loulai went to a home on 202nd Street in Bayside April 8 and stole a package with a filter worth $150. He was later seen on video that day on 214th Street in the Oakland Gardens neighborhood, where he stole a package of action figures worth $130, the complaint said.

Prosecutors said Loulai returned to a Queens Village neighborhood May 5, where he stole a $183 package, containing a toilet, from a home on 210th Street in Queens Village.

A police officer spotted Loulai on June 3 stealing a package of seven shirts worth $135 from a home on 257th Street in Bellerose, the release said.

Loulai was arraigned June 5 in Queens Criminal Court on six counts of petty larceny. He faces up to 6 years in prison if convicted.

Judge Bruna DiBiase ordered Loulai held on $6,000 bond or $3,000 cash bail and ordered him to return to court July 30.
