Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department, New York.

The PEOPLE, etc., respondent, v. Anthony McDOWELL, appellant.

Decided: September 27, 1999

SONDRA MILLER, J.P., CORNELIUS J. O'BRIEN, WILLIAM D. FRIEDMANN and ANITA R. FLORIO, JJ. Carol Siegel, Brooklyn, N.Y., for appellant. Charles J. Hynes, District Attorney, Brooklyn, N.Y. (Roseann B. MacKechnie and Camille O'Hara Gillespie of counsel), for respondent.

Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Egitto, J.), rendered May 21, 1996, convicting him of robbery in the first degree, grand larceny in the fourth degree, and criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth degree, upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence.

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.

There is no merit to the defendant's contention that he is entitled to a new trial because the People failed to provide him with notice, pursuant to Penal Law § 450.10, that the complainant's stolen telephone calling card, recovered from the defendant upon his arrest, was returned to the complainant prior to trial.   Absent prejudice or a showing that the statutory violation was intentional or in bad faith, reversal is not warranted (see, People v. Watkins, 239 A.D.2d 448, 658 N.Y.S.2d 39;  People v. Siriani, 216 A.D.2d 595, 628 N.Y.S.2d 570;  People v. Dent, 183 A.D.2d 723, 583 N.Y.S.2d 301).

The defendant's remaining contentions are without merit.

MEMORANDUM BY THE COURT.
