Police: Payless worker stole credit card information
Police say an employee at a Bellmore Payless robbed more than $11,000 from customers by stealing their credit card information.
According to authorities, 26-year-old Javier Acosta is charged with grand larceny and identity theft.
Acosta allegedly installed a "skimming" device at the Merrick Road store to record customers' credit card numbers and then transferred the information to his computer. Acosta also used a credit card printer to make phony cards, police say.
Police say they have so far proven Acosta stole 11 credit card numbers, but think he may have stolen many more.
He was arraigned today and is being held on $2,000 cash bail.
