NEW YORK (AP) — A former employee of a New York city law firm has been convicted of stealing more than $376,000 worth of copy machine toner from the firm.

Thirty-nine-year-old Adrian Rodriguez pleaded guilty to second-degree grand larceny for his thefts from the firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said Tuesday that Rodriguez ordered more than $376,000 worth of toner from vendors between 2010 and 2012. Prosecutors said Rodriguez then resold the black ink toner for $10 per box and the color ink toner for $15 per box.

The cartridges were worth $80 to $259 apiece.

Officials have said Rodriguez's scheme was part of a growing black market for toner cartridges and other office supplies.

He will be sentenced May 21.
