The former head of the New York State Police aviation unit has been charged with grand larceny for selling a state-owned Garmin 496 GPS to a fellow trooper. Retired Maj. Robert Kreppein is accused of selling the unit for $1,600 in 2008. Kreppein retired in July after media reports surfaced that he was being investigated for allegedly approving civilian flights on state police helicopters.
