BELLMORE - Cops say a Bellmore mechanic is accused of sabotaging a car so he could fix it.

Detectives say last month Thomas Cirino, 56, tampered with a vehicle parked on Grand Avenue and Petit Place.

Cops say Cirino made it so the car would not start and then planned to offer his services to repair the damage for a fee. Cirino was arrested and is expected in court today.
