Third arrest made in Bloomingdale’s theft scheme
Police have arrested a third man they say was working with store employees to steal from a Bloomingdale’s in East Garden City.
Raphael Julian faces multiple burglary and grand larceny charges, according to police. He was set to be arraigned Sunday.
Police say he teamed up with two other men, Kenneth John and Teron Butcher, who both worked as loss prevention agents at the store.
Butcher allegedly moved security cameras so John and Julian could move around undetected inside the store after business hours.
Police believe the trio stole $260,000 worth of merchandise over the course of a year.
