A New York man has been charged with selling personal information he stole from customers when he worked for a cellular service store in Westport.
Stefano Pascente, 23, of Richmond Hill, N.Y., turned himself in on a warrant issued after an investigation was launched last December into his role into the sale of people's personal information he took while working at the local business. Police did not identify the store.
Pascente was charged with nine counts of trafficking in personal identifying information.
Bond was set at $10,000 and he is scheduled to appear July 11 in Norwalk Superior Court.
