Nassau County Police arrested a mechanic Monday who they say scammed his employer out of over $15,000.
While working as a mechanic at BMT Automotive in South Farmingdale, police say Shaune Rooks, 44, of Middletown, ordered vehicle parts on the business account and installed them in customer’s cars on several dates. He then demanded to be paid in cash and would issue an invoice to the customer and void the invoice in the business’ computer system.
Rooks was arrested in Woodbury early Monday morning and charged with third degree grand larceny. He will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Tuesday.
