A teacher in the Hempstead school district was arrested Tuesday by the NYPD on a charge of grand larceny that the system’s superintendent said stemmed from alleged “reshipping” of computers addressed to the school system.
Theresa Cucina, 55, of Long Beach, was arrested at midday Tuesday at the district’s administrative building on Peninsula Boulevard. Her case will be processed by Midtown South detectives, police said.
She was led out of a side door of building in handcuffs to a waiting black car. The teacher did not say anything.
“We have a teacher being arrested for apparently receiving a lot of computers and then re-shipping them,” Superintendent Shimon Waronker said.
Waronker said the teacher had worked in the district for five years. Citing personnel issues, he declined to give her name.
Details still are being investigated, Waronker said.
