TRENTON, NJ – Dominick James Izzo, 50, of Piscataway and Port Orange, Florida was sentenced on Monday to 41 months in prison for shoplifting Barnes and Noble merchandise, selling the goods on eBay and failing to report proceeds to the IRS, said officials from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

According to court records, Izzo admitted to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from Barnes & Noble and other stores in New Jersey and Florida using a “booster bag” lined with aluminum to evade anti-theft alarms. He then listed and sold the merchandise on eBay, sending shipments from New Jersey and Florida to buyers in other states.

Izzo also faces charges for transportation of stolen goods and tax evasion for intentionally failing to report $399,485 in income he received from 2009-2011 for the sale of the stolen products, owing the government $67,360.
