    Cops: Firefighter dad, son stole smoke detectors

    A father and son have been charged with stealing dozens of smoke detectors from the fire department where the father serves as commissioner and the son serves as a firefighter, officials said Tuesday.
    New Hyde Park Fire Department fire Commissioner Michael Dolan, 68, of 1736 Aladdin Ave., surrendered to Nassau County police on Sunday and was charged with third-degree grand larceny.
    His son, Michael J. Dolan, 32, of the same address, a New Hyde Park firefighter, surrendered to police on Monday. He also was charged with third-degree grand larceny, police said.
    Police said the two men stole 65 Kidde smoke detectors on June 21 from a secured room inside the department firehouse at 1555 Jericho Tpke.
    The value of the smoke detectors was not known.
    Police did not immediately say what led them to arrest the father and son.
    A fire department spokesman referred Newsday to Joseph Frank, a lawyer who represents the fire district. "It's a very difficult situation," said Frank of Sapienza & Frank in Massapequa.
    Frank said he could not discuss details of the case.
    Police said the elder Dolan was arraigned Monday in First District Court in Hempstead. His son is scheduled for arraignment on Tuesday.
    Court records show the elder Dolan had his case continued Monday. His next court appearance is listed as July 27.

    To think, he might have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids and that dog!

    Can we say another internal beef stemming from BS now spun out of control?

    Charges dropped against fire official, son

    Published: October 25, 2012 7:55 AM

    Theft charges against a New Hyde Park Fire Department commissioner and his son, a volunteer firefighter, have been dismissed, law enforcement officials said.
    Fire Commissioner Michael Dolan and his son, Michael J. Dolan, had been charged with grand larceny in July -- the two men accused of misappropriating smoke detectors.
    A spokesman for Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice confirmed the charges against the Dolans were dropped, but declined to comment further.
    An attorney for the New Hyde Park Fire Department, Joseph Frank of Sapienza & Frank in Massapequa, told Newsday he could not discuss the case -- or the status of the two men as firefighters.
    "It's obviously with the fire district and department," Frank said of the situation, adding: "It's a separate matter from what the district attorney decided . . . I'm not at liberty to comment one way or the other."
    Dolan, 68, and his son, 32, who live on Aladdin Avenue, New Hyde Park, were charged with third-degree grand larceny, Nassau County police had said. Police had said the two stole 65 Kidde smoke detectors from a secured room at the firehouse on Jericho Turnpike in June. Court papers put the value of the detectors at $3,250.
    The elder Dolan is part of the five-member district board, which is elected.
    Frank said Dolan is not up for re-election this year.
