A former beauty salon employee who stole $8.7 million worth of shampoo, conditioner and cosmetics from a salon in New York’s East Village in 2016 is accused of trying to make a killing selling the items online.
Dorothy D’Agostino, 60, is accused by a Manhattan grand jury of illegally selling hair products to customers who paid for them.
D’Agosta has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go to trial in December.
She was arrested in July and charged with selling stolen goods.
She was arrested by police at a Manhattan salon where she was allegedly trying to sell shampoo, cosmetics and other items online, prosecutors said.
She allegedly asked customers to put their credit cards on hold, which would have allowed her to sell the items, authorities said.
D’-Agosta is alleged to have purchased $8 million worth in items from a hair salon at the same time she was selling them online, according to court documents.
She then attempted to resell the items in New Jersey, New York and California, prosecutors alleged.
She is accused in the indictment of using her knowledge of hair and beauty products to sell products that she would then resell online for a profit.
D”Agosta also allegedly used her position as a salon employee to make money off of stolen products and other goods that were allegedly sold at her salon, prosecutors wrote.
