A Best Buy vending machine holding tempting IPads, cameras and phone chargers caught the eye of Dominick Lisi, according to State Police.
They had been called investigate a report of a damaged vending machine at the Guilderland Service Area on I-90.
When Troopers reviewed the surveillance footage, they say it clearly showed a man removing items from the machine. The employees at the rest area recognized the man as Dominick Lisi, a fellow coworker at the service area.
Troopers say Lisi cooperated with them and turned over the stolen goods.
Lisi is charged with Petit Larceny, and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 5th Degree, both class A misdemeanors.
