ONLY ON CVP: A Hasbrouck Heights career criminal with a history of stealing copper wire was at it again this past summer, an indictment returned in Hackensack alleges.

Michael Prisco, 40, is charged with stealing property worth several hundred dollars from New Jersey Department of Transportation yards in Mahwah and Upper Saddle River in July.

A co-defendant, Nicholas A. Frasse, is charged in the Upper Saddle River theft.

Prisco’s criminal history stretches back half of his adult life, to 1995.

He’s been charged with a host of offenses in Elmwood Park, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Hasbrouck Heights, Maywood, Paramus and Ridgefield Park, among other towns — many involving burglary, theft and drug possession, according to court records.

A decade ago, Prisco violated parole with a burglary arrest, records show. He also has probation violations and several criminal traffic offenses, most times for driving without a license or insurance.

In October 2013, detectives in his hometown charged Prisco with swiping more than $20,000 of copper and other materials from a Route 17 construction site — a little more than a week after he was charged with stealing copper wire from an NJ Transit yard in Denville.
