Dec. 2, 2016 -- Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty announced that Stephen DiSalvo (DOB 12/13/56) of 1552 John Anderson Drive, Ormond Beach, FL was arraigned today on a forty-count indictment charging him with:

 

  • one count of Grand Larceny in the First Degree, a class “B” Felony,
  • three counts of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, class “C” Felonies,
  • nineteen counts of Forgery in the Second Degree, class “D” Felonies,
  • three counts of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, class “E” Felonies,
  • one count of Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree, a class “E” Felony and
  • four counts of Petit Larceny, class “A” Misdemeanors.

 

Back in November 2015, A.T.N.M. Corp., of Briarcliff Manor, New York; Christopher C. Leggio and Christopher E. Leggio, both of Brewster, New York; and DiSalvo of Ormond Beach, Florida, were charged in Briarcliff Manor Village Court with grand larceny in the second degree and scheme to defraud for their involvement in a fraud and theft scheme centered around A.T.N.M.’s trash hauling business.

At their arraignment, the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office alleged that between 2013 and 2015, A.T.N.M. a licensed solid waste hauler in Westchester County, while owned and operated by defendants Leggio, Leggio and DiSalvo, systematically altered several hundred dump tickets so as to fraudulently reflect a higher tonnage of solid waste being transported. These false dump tickets, attached to A.T.N.M. invoices, were submitted to a solid waste hauling broker for payment.  As a result of this scam, the broker, relying on the fraudulently altered dump tickets, paid over one million dollars to the defendants.

Further investigation revealed that the charged individuals had in fact been stealing from several of the A.T.N.M. customers since at least January 2010 and that DiSalvo has participated in falsifying, forging and altering over 3,000 dump tickets issued from at least six different weigh stations in and around Westchester County, leading to the larceny of over $2,000,000.00 from approximately twenty victims.

Since then, Christopher E. Leggio, 21, has pleaded guilty to scheme to defraud in the second degree and faces a maximum of one year in jail when he is sentenced. Christopher C. Leggio, 57, has pleaded guilty to grand larceny in the first degree and faces a maximum of eight and a third to twenty-five years of imprisonment when he is sentenced. Christopher C. Leggio, on behalf of A.T.N.M., also pleaded guilty to grand larceny in the second degree.

Today, DiSalvo was arraigned on the indictment charging him with forty counts of various fraud and theft related offenses. He pled not guilty. Bail remains at $50,000. The defendant is scheduled to return to court on Dec. 21, 2016.

In 2000, DiSalvo was convicted of grand larceny in the second degree by a jury. As a result of that conviction, DiSalvo lost his Westchester County solid waste hailing license in 2003 when he was operating A&S DiSalvo Carting, of Briarcliff Manor.

Because of DiSalvo’s prior conviction, DiSalvo faces a minimum of four-and-a-half to nine years  and a maximum of twelve-and-a-half to twenty-five years in prison if found guilty.

This case is being handled by the Investigations Division of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office. Assistant District Attorneys Lauren Abinanti and Robert Mayes are in charge of the prosecution.
