Ivan Vrabec, 48, was arraigned last week on charges that include identity theft and criminal possession of stolen property, both felonies, for allegedly stealing a credit card from the New York Sports Club in Dobbs Ferry.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr., said that the New Rochelle resident allegedly stole a credit card from the men’s locker room at the gym on Friday, Dec. 14. He allegedly opened the combination lock on the victim’s locker and put it back on without his victim knowing that someone had broken in. Vrabec then allegedly used the stolen credit card to purchase $660 worth of wine from the Westchester Wine Warehouse in Greenburgh.

Scarpino noted that Vrabec is currently on probation for similar crimes committed in New Jersey and his six prior felony convictions.

Vrabec was arrested and arraigned on Wednesday, Dec. 19 in Greenburgh Town Court. Bail has been set at $100,000 cash bail or $250,000 bond, based on his previous convictions and probation. No return court date has been set.

Anyone who believes that their credit cards were stolen at the New York Sports Club in Dobbs Ferry on Dec. 14, or in similar ways, have been instructed to contact the District Attorney’s Office by calling (914) 995-3420.
