Men Who Stored Stolen Clothes Arrested in East Farmingdale, N.Y.

Posted in News, Archive, News, Happenings

Two men who stole charity-donated clothes from local donation bins and stored them in an East Farmingdale, N.Y., self-storage unit were arrested this week. According to Suffolk County police, Rafael-Luis Castillo, 39, and Andrew Solano, 23, took items from donation bins and ultimately sold them at Long Island flea markets. The two were seen unloading stolen goods into a unit at Public Storage on Route 110 on Monday. Several bags of clothing were recovered.
The compromised bins were owned by Community Crusade for Children, a nonprofit charitable organization, which reported thefts from locations in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
Castillo and Solano were charged with criminal possession of stolen property and will be arraigned next week.
