January 20, 2015
Fernando Gonzales, 47, of the Bronx was sentenced today by Supreme Court Justice Jill Konviser to a term of from 2 to 4 years in New York State Prison. Gonzales had previously pleaded guilty to the first count of his four count indictment charging him with Burglary in the Third Degree in connection with the January 30, 2014 burglary and theft of a safe from Port Parties Limited located at Pier 92 in Manhattan. Gonzales had been quickly identified as the perpetrator of the crime by detectives from the Waterfront Commission and the New York City Police Department but had fled New York City. On July 1, 2014, detectives from the Waterfront Commission located Gonzales in Troy, New York and arrested him there. The New York County District Attorney’s Office prosecuted the matter.
