May 11, 2017 -- Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. announced today that Stephen DiSalvo (DOB 12/13/56) of 1552 John Anderson Drive, Ormond Beach, FL pled guilty before Judge Barry Warhit to:

  • one count of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, a class “C” Felony.

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 defrauding and 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.

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. Christopher C. Leggio, 57, has pleaded guilty to grand larceny in the first degree and faces a minimum of one to three years and  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.

The defendant remains out after posting $50,000 bail.  

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.

The defendant’s next court date is Aug. 16, 2017.

Because of DiSalvo’s prior conviction, he can receive a sentence of a minimum of three to six years and a maximum of seven-and-a-half to fifteen years in state prison for his plea of guilty to Grand Larceny in the Second Degree.

Assistant District Attorney Lauren Abinanti of the Investigations Division is prosecuting this case.
