LONGSHOREMAN SUSPENDED AFTER ARREST FOR THEFT AND CRIMINAL POSSESSION OF STOLEN PROPERTY
April 28, 2015
Longshoreman Michael Natoli has been suspended by the Commission and a Notice of Hearing has been issued after his arrest in Brooklyn, New York, for Grand Larceny in the 4th Degree, a Class E Felony, and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 4th Degree, a Class E Felony. Natoli stole almost $2000 worth of refrigeration equipment and copper pipe by deception. Natoli falsely represented himself as an employee of a legitimate refrigeration company and placed and picked up an order from a refrigeration supply company. Natoli has since plead guilty in Kings County Supreme Court to Grand Larceny in the 4th Degree, a Class E Felony.
The Commission temporarily suspended Natoli’s longshoreman registration pending the outcome of an Administrative Hearing on the matter. The Kings County District Attorney’s Office is prosecuting the criminal matter.
