A Lindenhurst man was arrested Tuesday after authorities said he used a debit card without the owner’s permission and also stole jewelry from a home in Wantagh, Nassau County police said.

Robert Marlow, 23, is awaiting arraignment Dec. 3 at First District Court in Hempstead after being charged with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny.

Police said they pegged Marlow to the larceny after he was caught on surveillance cameras using a woman’s debit card at a West Islip food store without her permission. The 20-year-old female victim called police on Oct. 26 to report unauthorized activity on her bank account after finding her debit card missing from her wallet. Surveillance footage at the unidentified store reportedly showed Marlow “using the card without the authority to do so,” police said.

He was additionally charged for a burglary of a home on Red Maple Drive South in Wantagh. Police said Marlow broke the glass on a rear window of the home on Nov. 18 before rummaging through the house and stealing an assortment of jewelry. Authorities later learned he pawned the stolen goods at shops in West Babylon and Massapequa Park.

Police said Marlow surrendered himself to detectives early Tuesday. He was due to appear in court for arraignment later in the day.
