    2 sentenced in ink cartridge theft
    April 2006
    TROY
    – Two men found guilty last month of stealing computer printer ink
    cartridges from an office supply store in North Greenbush were
    sentenced to state prison terms Tuesday.A jury March 27 found both
    Daniel Dellisanti, 31, and George A. Athanasatos, 52, guilty of grand
    larceny and burglary.Dellisanti was sentenced by Judge Robert M. Jacon
    to 1 to 4 years in prison and Athanasatos was sentenced to 2 to 7 years
    in prison. Their previous addresses were not available.Dellisanti
    entered a Staples store at 8 p.m. last July 14, grabbed a framed
    certificate wall plaque and a waste basket and put 29 Hewlett-Packard
    printer cartridges in the basket. He then walked out the rear of the
    store through an employees-only area.Outside, Athanasatos waited in a
    getaway car. Both were soon stopped and arrested. The property was
    valued at more than $1,000.During the trial, the jury heard from
    Massachusetts authorities who arrested the pair for a similar heist at
    a Staples store in Natick the day before. They were convicted of the
    crimes in that state, but sentencing information was not available
    Tuesday.
    Athanasatos got more time because of an earlier
    conviction.He served 30 months in prison in the early 1990s after being
    convicted of federal charges of conspiracy to transport stolen items
    across state lines. He was found in possession of missing art items,
    some from the Albany Institute of History & Art. A March 1989
    indictment charged him in connection with that case, in which 25 art
    objects were stolen from six museums.
    The artworks and antiques,
    ranging from a $2 million 14th-century Chinese vase to 16 antique
    pocket watches, had a total value of $3.5 million, the FBI said at the
    time. They were taken between Jan. 12 and Feb. 25, 1989, from museums
    in Syracuse, Boston, Baltimore, Detroit and Columbus, Ohio, and Albany.
