GUILTY

AUTHOR: Former Oceanside kickboxing staff - ()

District Attorney

Posted on: February 25, 2015

Oceanside Gym Owner Pleads Guilty to Using Gym Members’ Credit Card Numbers to Steal Thousands in Merchandise

Thomas Donovan, 39, of Island Park, used personal financial information belonging to clients of kickboxing gyms he owned.

MINEOLA, N.Y. – Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas announced that an Island Park man pleaded guilty to using his clients’ personal financial information to steal thousands in merchandise from Home Depot, and for possessing a loaded firearm found in his home. 

Thomas Donovan, 39, pleaded guilty today to Attempted Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 2nd Degree (a D violent felony) and Grand Larceny in the 3rd Degree (a D felony) before Acting Nassau Supreme Court Justice Jerald Carter. 

Justice Carter gave the defendant a sentencing commitment of three years in prison followed by three years of post-release supervision. Donovan agreed to make restitution of $17,719.27 to Home Depot and $690.50 to an Oceanside scrap metal recycler. He is due back in court on April 8. 

“Using personal financial information to steal comes with serious consequences,” Acting DA Singas said. “Thanks to our partnership with the Nassau County Police Department’s Crimes Against Property Squad, we are actively combating this growing sector of crime in order to protect consumers, as well as the legitimate businesses they patronize.”

Acting DA Singas said that between Nov. 17 and Dec. 9, 2014, Donovan, as the owner of 5 Star Kickboxing in Oceanside, previously known as KOXO Kickboxing, engaged in a scheme to fraudulently obtain property from Home Depot by using credit card information of individuals who signed up for fitness classes at his gym. 

On multiple dates, Donovan acted in concert with another individual, who would visit various Home Depot locations in Nassau and Suffolk Counties to select various items for purchase, bring them to the Pro Desk, and supply the cashier with the name and phone number of a fictitious contractor. 

Home Depot employees would then call the telephone number to obtain credit card information for payment. Donovan would answer the phone, assume the identity of that fictitious contractor and supply, as payment, credit card account numbers, security codes and expiration dates without the permission or authority of the cardholder. 

The credit card information used to pay for the Home Depot merchandise was obtained by Donovan from clients of his kickboxing gym. 

As part of the scheme, Donovan scrapped stolen wire for $690.50 with an Oceanside scrap metal recycler. The wire was later seized from the recycler by police as stolen property.

During the investigation, eight search warrants were issued and executed at the defendant’s home, business, and vehicles. The defendant was found to be in possession of a loaded .25 caliber pistol as well as thousands of dollars of Home Depot merchandise.

Donovan was arrested by the Nassau County Police Department Crimes Against Property Squad on Dec. 9 at his Island Park home. 

Members of 5 Star Kickboxing, or Donovan’s previous business, KOXO Kickboxing, who suspect unauthorized charges to their credit card accounts should contact Acting DA Singas’ Tipline for Crimes in Nassau County at (516) 571-7755.

Here is a Email Tom Donovan sent me. i have contacted Detective Marshall and there is nothing he can do, i was told to take it to my local police. He has even included my daughter in the threat. i dont know how he knew i had one, must have been facebook he found her on.  This is just one of his letters to me sent 9/24/14- 

"I just want you to know, we are suing u. We have emails stating u wanted to shut the website down. Fraudulent claims about me will do nothing.
