Police arrested a man who was caught on camera stealing from elderly shoppers at Nassau supermarkets.
Police say Frank Rodriguez, of Rockaway Beach, is facing grand larceny and ID theft charges.
They say he targeted elderly women, taking purses or credit cards from their shopping carts while they were distracted.
He would then allegedly leave the store and immediately make as many purchases as possible before the credit cards were canceled.
Police say Rodriguez's crime spree stretched from March to July, hitting supermarkets in Great Neck, Carle Place and New Hyde Park.
Police are asking anyone else who thinks they may be a victim to call them.
