MASPETH — Last month the Queens district attorney’s office charged 29-year-old Elmhurst resident Alfonso Suarez with grand larceny and possession of stolen property.
Suarez, who works at the Maspeth UPS facility, allegedly slapped false shipping labels on $22,000 worth of cellular phones, changing their legitimate destinations to his residence at 51-06 Junction Blvd., the DA’s office said.
According to a criminal complaint, Suarez’s security supervisor found that during the months of March and May, at least 55 Samsung and Apple cell phones shipped from the facility never reached their legitimate destinations.
As a result of the losses, the supervisor decided to place a GPS tracking device on several packages, and on June 29 he followed those shipments as they were delivered to Suarez’s home, where he signed for the packages, according to the complaint.
