HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - A New York City man is accused of advertising and selling fraudulent state vehicle inspection stickers.

Nassau County police say Octavian Ocasio, of Brooklyn, was arrested after undercover detectives bought a fake inspection sticker from him at a parking lot in Lynbrook.

They say he advertised the stickers on the website Letgo.

Ocasio is scheduled to be arraigned in Hempstead on Wednesday on charges of falsifying business records and three counts of possessing a fictitious inspection sticker.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
