PITTSBURGH — A New Jersey man is now in prison after admitting to bilking more than $350,000 from metal recyclers.

Stephen Salvatore Intrieri of Mount Laurel, N.J. pleaded guilty to wire fraud in a scam that lasted almost a year. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison, followed by 36 months of supervised release, and ordered to pay $326,474 in restitution.

From September 2011 through July 2012, Intrieri misrepresented himself as a Montana broker who was selling scrap metal for various parties, according to the original indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Montana. He netted $367,419 from unnamed New Jersey recyclers who believed they would be receiving material from Canada, China, the United Kingdom or the United States.

Intrieri, who didn’t represent a Montana recycler, took the money but never delivered the scrap, according to court documents.
