Thursday, January 19, 2023
Burlington County Prosecutor LaChia L. Bradshaw announced that a 31-year-old Levittown, Pennsylvania, man has been charged with stealing more than $866,000 from his Willingboro-based employer.
Brian Myslinski, of Silverspruce Road, surrendered yesterday at the Prosecutor’s Office in Mount Holly. He was charged with Financial Facilitation of Criminal Activity (First Degree), Elements of Computer Theft (First Degree), Theft by Unlawful Taking (Second Degree), Receiving Stolen Property (Second Degree) and Misapplication of Entrusted Property (Second Degree).
He was released yesterday following an appearance in Superior Court before the Hon. Christopher J. Garrenger, J.S.C. The case will be prepared for presentation to a grand jury for possible indictment.
The investigation began after representatives of Radwell International contacted the BCPO Financial Crimes Unit with allegations that a former employee had conducted a theft and fencing operation while working at the company in 2021.
According to its website, “Radwell International stocks and sells new and surplus Industrial Automation, MRO, Pneumatic, Motion, Electronic, Hydraulic, HVAC and Electrical Control Equipment for plant floor and facilities maintenance machinery.”
The investigation revealed that Myslinski, a supervisor, used his knowledge of and access to the company’s internal systems to steal $866,834 worth of specialized merchandise, which he then sold directly to customers and through online platforms such as eBay.
The investigation further revealed that Myslinski used more than $120,000 of the proceeds from the illegal sales to cover sports gambling debts, and also spent $50,000 on a 1974 Dodge Charger classic car, $20,000 on another vehicle, funded a vacation to Jamaica, and bought Gucci and Louis Vuitton handbags and purses, among other high-end items.
The BCPO Financial Crimes Unit conducted the investigation. The lead investigator was BCPO Detective Troy Sudeck. Myslinski will be prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutor Andrew McDonnell, supervisor of the BCPO Financial Crimes Unit.
All persons are considered innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
