66th Precinct – What’s the Going Rate for a Corrupt Cop?


Lt. Michael Andreano Joins the Ranks of those Alleged to be in Bed with the Epidemic of Corruption within the Ultra Orthodox Community of Borough Park and Beyond…


NYPD lieutenant stripped of badge, gun over ties to bribery scheme


A high-ranking Brooklyn cop has been stripped of his badge and gun over ties to a key figure in an alleged $1 million NYPD bribery scheme, The Post has learned.

Lt. Michael Andreano of the 66th Precinct in Boro Park was put on desk duty as part of the wide-ranging corruption probe that has already resulted in pending charges against three NYPD bosses, sources said.

Andreano is suspected of having improper dealings with Alex “Shaya” Lichtenstein, a leader of the Boro Park “Shomrim” patrol who in April was busted on bribery and conspiracy charges involving pistol permits, sources said.

“This guy was tight with Shaya and would go out of his way to accommodate him,” a source said.

Andreano served as a community-affairs sergeant in the 66th Precinct before getting promoted to lieutenant in 2015 and transferred to the 60 Precinct in West Brighton.

He was transferred back to the 66th after “a month or two,” sources said, and put in charge of Special Operations there.

Andreano’s return was announced at a Community Council meeting in September 2015, according to the KensingtonBK blog.

Lichtenstein was allegedly recorded offering a whistleblowing cop $6,000 a pop to “expedite” approval of pistol permits for members of Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish community.

During that conversation, Lichtenstein used a calculator to show that 150 permits would be worth $900,000, according to the feds.

He also allegedly bragged that he had already scored 150 permits for clients who paid him up to $18,000 each for the service but said he had lost his connection in the NYPD’s License Division.

Earlier this month, a prosecutor revealed there had been “continuous discussions” for Lichtenstein to strike a plea deal, and a judge gave both sides until Nov. 3 to come to terms or proceed with the case.

The cop who secretly recorded Lichtenstein, former License Division member David Ochetal, secretly pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with authorities after admitting that he had accepted “lunch money” from Lichtenstein.

Asking a Crook to Tell you if you are Crooked, the Irony




Community Board 12, in advance of the driving season, has “teamed up with” the 66th Precinct to check drivers’ licenses and advise if drivers are in good standing. We can’t fault the idea. Only a really good set of crooks would know how to keep people driving a straight line.

We just can’t help commenting on the irony. It seems absurd to be asking the guys who regularly drive Shomrim vehicles to private endeavors, who have been known to issue gun licenses for cash, who have endeavored to protect their own from criminal prosecution, to make certain that your license is clean.

For a fee we wonder if they will scrub the license clean. Wait… is that legal?

We certainly suggest advising them when you will be away (as they are giving tips on protecting your property. Will they protect your home for a fee too?

Did we mention that Mendy Israel was once a member of CB 12? Probably not… that’s next.

Boro Park: Community Board 12 Hosts License Check Drive In Anticipation of Summer Driving Season –

Every summer, during peak driving season, when people are travelling upstate or to resorts and vacation spots, we hear of instances where people were arrested for driving while having a suspended license. Most of the times that this occurs, the situation is a misunderstanding or a completely innocent mistake that could’ve easily been avoided. For instance, it happens when someone forgets to answer a traffic ticket or they thought that it’s being handled by a lawyer and it somehow got lost in the shuffle without them ever being aware of it. –
To help prevent this from happening, Community Board 12 has teamed up with the 66th Precinct to provide license checks to anybody that wants. It’s simple. Just come in to the Community Board office at 5910 13th Avenue on Monday between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm, hand your license to an officer, they check it and let you know if it’s in good standing or you need to correct something. This way you can avoid all the embarrassment and heartache that come along with being arrested on the street, let alone, all the travel plans that are now potentially ruined. –
