A 40-year-old upstate New York sports memorabilia dealer has been charged with grand larceny after investigators say he took sports cards and memorabilia from a customer and never gave them back after his store abruptly closed.
Donald “Brendon” Brownson II, 40, is the former owner of Omega Sports Memorabilia in Queensbury, N.Y. He was arrested over the weekend in Niagara Falls, according to the Post-Star in Glens Falls.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office said Brownson is accused of stealing $8,250 worth of items from a customer who lives in nearby Saratoga County.
