BAY SHORE -

A Bay Shore man will face a judge Thursday for allegedly stealing $10,000 in J.C. Penney's merchandise.

Police say 63-year-old Karl Holmes stole home goods from the Bay Shore store earlier this year.

They say he was arrested Wednesday when he was picked up on a parole violation.

Investigators say they believe Holmes may have been stealing stuff at the store since 2015.
