(Scroll down for video) Ten people were arrested on charges of theft after being caught selling canceled airplane tickets to unsuspecting customers, prosecutors in New York said.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., announced the indictment of 10 individuals connected to a commercial travel scam in which the defendants, using credit card information obtained illegally, were able to steal more than $1 million from approximately 200 victims.

As a result, this fraudulent activity disrupted many victims’ long-planned international travel, in some cases preventing them from attending weddings or visiting sick family members.

The defendants are each charged in an indictment in New York State Supreme Court, with varying counts of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, Identity Theft in the First Degree, and Scheme to Defraud, among other charges.

“During the holiday season when so many people are traveling to visit their families at great personal expense, it is especially important to be on high alert for scam artists and cybercriminals,” warned District Attorney Vance.

“This alleged scheme left a pregnant woman stranded during a multi-part trip, forced relatives to miss a family wedding abroad, and made it impossible for a son to visit his cancer-stricken father in India. I encourage individuals to report this type of fraud by calling my Cybercrime & Identity Theft Hotline at 212-335-9600,” he added.

According to the police investigation, the defendants are accused of operating a business involving multiple incorporated travel agencies — including Bombay Travel and Tours, Raj Travel, Gandhi Travel, Patel Travel and Maha Guru Travel — and several bank accounts that were fraudulently opened in the name of the aforementioned travel agencies, using falsified passports and licenses.

The defendants placed advertisements in predominantly Indian-American publications throughout the U.S., and purported to offer competitively priced tickets to and from popular destinations in India.

Travelers seeking assistance with arrangements were instructed to provide names, passport numbers, and flight information, and deposit payment checks directly into bank accounts controlled by the defendants.

However, in lieu of using customers’ checks to pay for tickets, the defendants pocketed the money and instead used stolen credit card information — including that of American Express, Citibank, and Discover card holders — to buy the tickets that were later sent to their customers.

When travelers arrived at the airport for their scheduled trips, many were informed that their tickets had been cancelled, or that they would not be able to travel using the illegally purchased tickets, for which they had already paid thousands of dollars to the defendants.

Among others, victims of the travel scam included a woman who was seven-months pregnant and unable to complete a leg of her scheduled trip, family members who were not able to attend a relative’s wedding, and an individual who was prevented from visiting a sick father in India.

A father and son were arrested, charged and convicted in connection with the fatal stabbing of a man who purchased illegal drugs, prosecutors in New York said.

Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson announced that a 46-year-old Brooklyn man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison, following his conviction on charges of first-degree manslaughter for beating and stabbing to death a 39-year-old man in East Williamsburg.

The defendant’s 21-year-old son pleaded guilty to assault for his part in the attack.

“A man is dead and a father and son are headed to prison, all because of a fight over eight dollars. This defendant showed a callous disregard for life when he fatally stabbed the victim – who had already been knocked to the ground. He must now pay for his crime,” District Attorney Thompson said.

The District Attorney said that the defendant, Rafael Vargas, 46, of 73 Nostrand Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, was sentenced by Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Vincent Del Giudice, to a term of 12 years in prison and five years of post-release supervision.

The defendant was convicted of first-degree manslaughter last month following a jury trial.

According to the police investigation, at the Cooper Park Houses on Jackson Street, in East Williamsburg, the defendant and his son, Richie Vargas, 22, attacked 39-year-old Anthony Dash.

Richie Vargas was attempting to purchase crack cocaine from an individual. Dash was also present. When Richie Vargas held out $8 dollars, the victim grabbed it, saying that he was “owed” the money.

Richie Vargas then left the area, got his father and went back to confront Dash. He repeatedly punched Dash in the head and body, knocking him to the ground.

Rafael Vargas then pulled out a knife and began slashing at Dash, finally stabbing him in the thigh and cutting Dash’s femoral artery.

He died at Woodhull Hospital Center. Richie Vargas pleaded guilty to first and second-degree assault.

female students on school property.

“This is a disturbing case in which a teacher allegedly groped young girls. This defendant is an alleged predator who surrounded himself with vulnerable victims.

A man was arrested, charged and convicted of murder after going on a stabbing spree, killing two people and injuring four others, prosecutors in New York said.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., announced that Christian Falero, 26, was found guilty in connection with the attack against six people.

The defendant was found guilty by a jury in New York State Supreme Court of the top charge in the indictment, Murder in the First Degree, as well as various charges of Assault, Attempted Assault, Robbery, and Burglary.

“Christian Falero embarked on a five-minute-long campaign of terror in his apartment building, in which six people were senselessly and brutally attacked - four of them elderly - and two people lost their lives,” said District Attorney Vance.

“For showing no regard for human life, a jury rightfully found him guilty of two counts of Murder in the First Degree. Manhattan is a safer place with violent criminals like this defendant off our city’s streets,” he added.

According to the police investigation, approximately 4:00 p.m., Falero attacked six people inside his apartment building on Riverside Drive at West 160th Street in Washington Heights. First, the defendant chased down and brutally beat a 22-year-old female home health aide by the building’s mailboxes on the first floor.

He then ran upstairs to the second floor, yelled “Fire!,” causing a 75-year-old resident to open her front door.

He immediately assaulted her, grabbed a knife from her apartment, and attacked her 81-year-old husband, Ignacio Collazo, fatally stabbing him multiple times.

Upon hearing the attack, two concerned neighbors opened their doors. Falero stabbed them both, killing 60-year-old Yan Zhi Wang and stabbing an 85-year-old woman nine times.

He then stole the cellphone of another concerned neighbor standing in the hall while she had been attempting to call police.

Falero then fled the building and was immediately apprehended by police.

New York police officer caught cashing stolen business checks

By: Tanya Malhotra

A police officer was arrested on charges of theft after allegedly stealing checks and cashing them, prosecutors in New York said.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced that the 24-year-old New York City police officer, who worked part-time for a Flushing paint store, has been charged with cashing two checks and pocketing nearly $7,000 in cash.

The checks had allegedly been stolen from a business that is sharing building space with the paint store.

“As a police officer, the defendant was hired to uphold the law. In this case, it is alleged that he threw away a promising career in law enforcement by knowingly cashing two checks that had been stolen and retaining the proceeds. The defendant will now be held accountable for his alleged actions,” District Attorney Brown said.

Gerardo Laera was charged with third and fourth-degree grand larceny and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

If convicted, the defendant faces up to seven years in prison.

According to the police investigation, Laera worked part-time for Clearview Paint Supply, a paint store located in the basement of a commercial building located on Francis Lewis Boulevard in Flushing, Queens.

Sharing office space in the basement and a common hallway is the real estate agency, Douglaston Development Corporation. The owner of Douglaston Development wrote a check to “cash” for $2,000.

He placed the check inside his desk and later discovered it missing. He reported the unendorsed check as stolen to his bank.

Video surveillance of a JPMorgan Chase Bank branch allegedly showed Laera using an ATM to deposit the $2,000 check into his checking account and making a cash withdrawal of $35.

It is additionally alleged that Laera cashed a check for $5,000 at Prince Check Cashing Corporation on Roosevelt Avenue in Flushing, Queens.

The check was drawn from a closed account of Douglaston Development Corporation and made out to “cash.”

Laera allegedly presented his NYPD shield and New York State driver’s license, which the manager of the check cashing business made a copy of before providing Laera with $4,900 in cash.

When the check cashing manager later attempted to deposit the check, it was returned by his bank unpaid. Laera joined the New York City Police Department in January 2013 and was assigned to the 81st Precinct in Brooklyn.

He submitted his resignation after being charged.

Gang of thieves steal wool and lamb from numerous farms

Police are looking to arrest several serial thieves who are responsible for stealing wool and lamb from numerous farms, police in Zealand said.

Canterbury Police have received reports about two Akaroa farms being targeted for wool in the last three weeks, and one for lamb over the last 9 months.

About 15 bales of wool were reported stolen from a wool shed off Stony Bay Road, earlier this month. Another farm on Birdlings Flat, reported that 20 bales of wool were stolen earlier this week.

Bales of wool weigh about 170 kilos (375 pounds) so it is possible that more than one person has been involved in stealing them.

It is unknown whether the wool bales were taken in one trip or if the offenders have visited the remote woolsheds over a period of a few days.

An off road vehicle with a large trailer or flatbed truck would be required to move the wool bales. Over the last nine months, a neighboring farmer in Birdlings Flat, has been a victim of a number of stock thefts.

Only a small number of animals were slaughtered each time, but this has accumulated to 10 ewes and two lambs.

What is particularly disturbing is that a number of the ewes that were about to give birth to twins were included in those taken, resulting in 12 unborn lambs being lost.

The animals were butchered with only the heads, pelts and hocks left at the scene.

Police are concerned that the offenders may retarget these farms or target other farms in the wider Akaroa and Canterbury area.

Police encourage farmers to padlock access gates and wool sheds to protect their assets.

Three hours after she was first picked up, the offender left the traumatized and injured girl in the main carpark of Auckland Zoo in Western Springs.

The suspect was described as an Indian, about 25 years old with dark skin, and talking with a slight accent. The man was also wearing a white netted baseball cap.

"This was a brutal and prolonged attack on a young woman, and we're working very hard to make sure this person is brought to justice. We have a solid description of the offender and his car, and I'm urging people to think about whether they recognize either the suspect or his car,” Detective Sergeant Scott Armstrong of the Waitemata Police said.

Man found guilty of killing intruder despite ‘stand your ground law’

(Scroll down for video) A man is facing 10 years in prison after he was found guilty of killing a teenager who broke into his home.

Markus Kaarma, 30, of Montana, shot and killed a German exchange student after he walked into his garage.

Now, Kaarma was convicted of murder despite arguing that he had the right to do so under the “stand your ground law,” which allows the use lethal force to protect a home or family.

Prosecutors said that Kaarma left his garage door open to lure intruders into his home with the intent of murder.

The court heard that 17-year-old Diren Dede of Hamburg, Germany, was with a friend when they spotted an open garage door and a purse laying on the floor.

Dede and his friend went inside the garage, and were immediately confronted and shot by Kaarma. The friend managed to escape, but Dede was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three witnesses testified that they heard Kaarma say that his home had been burglarized before and that he stayed up all night to shoot the intruder.

Kaarma and his wife were alerted to an intruder by motion sensors. Witnesses said that Kaarma fired four shots, which hit Dede. Dede was not armed.

Attorney’s for the suspect argued that Kaarma feared for his life, and he did not know if the intruder was armed. They said that Kaarma’s actions were justifiable because he feared for the safety of his family.

However, University of Montana law professor Andrew King-Ries said that state law does not allow owners to use lethal force to protect their property, but requires them to act reasonably.

Kaarma’s attorneys said they will appeal the ruling.

In the video below, Gulcin and Celal Dede, the parents of the 17-year-old victim, can be seen hugging and rejoicing over the guilty verdict.
