A Queens man accused of targeting women's credit cards at Nassau supermarkets will face a judge Saturday. 
Frank Rodriguez is charged with 25 counts of grand larceny and four counts of identity theft.
Police say he was caught on camera taking purses or credit cards from victims' shopping carts while they were distracted at grocery stores in Great Neck Plaza, Carle Place and New Hyde Park.
Investigators say he would then leave the store and make as many purchases as possible.
