Islanders Fan Swipes Team Glove

Police say this man stole a team glove after an Islanders game.

UPDATE: Lynbrook resident Matthew P. Kircheim turned himself in yesterday and was arrested and charged with petit larceny. He was released on an appearance ticket and is scheduled for court on June 2.

Police are looking for an Islanders fan who left one of the last games at Nassau Coliseum with more than just memories.

According to detectives, at the end of a playoff game against the Washington Capitals, the unknown male suspect snatched a team glove from the Islanders’ bench. He was later photographed with the glove in the arena parking lot enjoying what was probably one of many alcoholic beverages. The suspect is described as a white male with a beard, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, blue shirt and blue hat.

Detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-8477. All callers will remain anonymous.
