NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A TJ Maxx assistant manager from Brooklyn has been arrested for allegedly stealing items from the national retailer and selling them at his own store.
Prosecutors announced the arrest of Cornell Poyser, 40, Wednesday afternoon on charges of grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and possession of burglar’s tools.
As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, it takes time and effort to start a business.
“Many people dream of starting their own business…[but Poyser] didn’t want to wait, so he found a creative but quite illegal way,” Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said. “Stocked, top to bottom with TJ Maxx merchandise.”
