WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Prosecutors say a Westchester County parks worker stole golf cart batteries, sprinkler heads and other items from his workplace. Then he allegedly redeemed them for cash at a metal recycling company.

The Westchester County district attorney says Michael Gallo of Yorktown was arraigned Thursday on grand larceny and other charges. A call to his lawyer was not immediately returned.

Gallo is accused of stealing six electric golf cart batteries, five other batteries, four brass couplers and eight brass sprinkler heads. Other 2013 thefts included two spot lamps, a sump pump, a power washer and a hand truck.

A district attorney’s spokeswoman said she didn’t know how much Gallo allegedly received for the items, but they would cost nearly $15,000 to replace. The recycling company would not comment.
