An FDNY Fire Prevention inspector was arrested yesterday for falsely claiming he inspected the boilers of 17 Queens homes, officials said.
Robert Stewart, 40, was charged with 38 counts of falsifying records after investigators determined that he simply sat in his car and filled out inspection certificates for the buildings on 154th and 162nd Sts. in Whitestone.
Stewart, who lives in Queens, was suspended without pay, FDNY officials said.
The FDNY will reinspect the boilers in question, officials said.
