N.Y. man sentenced in thefts from area stores

August 29, 2006

A New York man who prosecutors say was part of a group that stole $400,000 worth of high-tech merchandise from stores - including a Ritz Camera in Baltimore County - was sentenced to three years in prison yesterday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, authorities said.

Anthony Todisco of Brooklyn, N.Y., was also ordered by U.S. District Judge Andre M. Davis to pay $123,891 in restitution and serve three years of supervised release after his release from prison, according to an announcement by the office of U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.

Todisco pleaded guilty in June to interstate transportation of stolen property.

Todisco's brother Jerry Todisco, 29, also has pleaded guilty and faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a possible fine. His sentencing has not been scheduled.

The Tadiscos and Scott Hornick and Sasha Ingardi, both of Queens, N.Y., were accused in burglaries at businesses in Maryland and other states from 2002 to December 2004, prosecutors said.

Hornick and Ingardi are fugitives, prosecutors said.
