DIGITAL EQUIPMENT'S FORMER WAREHOUSE SUPERVISOR PLEADS GUILTY TO CHARGES
 OF TRANSPORTING STOLEN PROPERTY
 BOSTON, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The former warehouse supervisor for Digital Equipment Corporation's Athol plant pled guilty today to six counts of interstate transportation of stolen property.
 U.S. Attorney A. John Pappalardo announced today that Joseph McGee, 46, of Leominster, Mass., pled guilty today before U.S. District Judge Douglas P. Woodlock to six counts of violation of 18 U.S.C. '2314, interstate shipment of stolen property. Each of these charges carries a maximum penalty of five years incarceration, a $250,000 fine, and a special assessment of $50.
 Judge Woodlock scheduled sentencing for Nov. 5, 1992. McGee had been indicted in July 1991 in an indictment charging 16 persons in a multi million dollar scheme to steal computer boards and products from the Digital Equipment Corporation and to launder the proceeds from the sales of those stolen products. The defendants charged in that indictment include two employees of Digital Equipment Corporation, two persons formerly employed at Digital warehouses, an accountant in Charlestown, a real estate agent in Boston, and the owner of a bookkeeping service in Boston.
 According to evidence presented at the change of plea hearing, McGee was recruited in 1989 by Philip Mario Carnovale to steal boards for him. McGee agreed, and over about a nine month period, McGee stole boards from the Athol plant and gave them to Carnovale. Carnovale, in turn, paid McGee more than $50,000. Upon McGee's transfer to the DEC plant in Contoocook, New Hampshire, Carnovale undertook steps to purchase for McGee a home to insure that McGee would continue to steal computer boards for him. McGee is the fifth person to plead guilty in this case.
 The case has been investigated by Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Special Agents of the Criminal Investigations Division of the Internal Revenue Service. Digital Equipment Corporation provided assistance during the investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael K. Loucks.
