EAST GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A sales associate at a Bloomingdale’s on Long Island is accused of stealing as much as $117,000 from his employer through an identity theft scheme.
Between November 2013 and March 2014, Nassau County police said Yorell Moses, 27, of Freeport used stolen credit card information to buy merchandise and gift cards.
“Moses continued to defraud the company by purchasing merchandise with the gift cards from various Bloomingdale’s locations and then return the merchandise for credit to his Bloomingdale’s store credit card,” police spokesperson Maureen Roach told WCBS 880’s Mike Xirinachs.
Moses was arrested on the job at Bloomingdale’s in East Garden City on Tuesday.
He is charged with second-degree grand larceny and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Wednesday.
