The New York Daily News cited sources late Tuesday night as saying Joe Flannino “was caught lifting documents from a team archive room in the basement of the stadium.”
One of Flannino’s duties was to protect the archive room, where important team documents and other memorabilia from its long history are stored.
Flannino was well-known at the stadium, having worked at the ballpark and for the team over the course of nearly 20 years.
Exactly which items were involved in the case wasn’t revealed in the newspaper’s online story and police sources told the Daily News it was unlikely charges would be filed. The missing items have been returned.
