Three men from Queens were arrested Wednesday on felony larceny charges after they allegedly used fraudulent credit cards to purchase more than $100,000 in merchandise from a Bloomingdales store in Garden City, Nassau County police said Jan. 2.

The men -- Sahibvir Johal, 20, of South Ozone Park; Jaleel Warren, 22, of St. Albans; and Rhashaan Watson, 22, of Jamaica – are all charged with second-degree grand larceny, third-degree conspiracy and first-degree scheme to defraud charges.

Detectives said the trio walked into Bloomingdales on Old Country Road in Garden City on Wednesday afternoon and made $9, 349 in purchases using different credit cards.

Authorities said the credit cards were fake and a story security guard allegedly recognized the three men “as the same people who made multiple purchases in the past using fraudulent credit cards,” a news release said. Detectives later learned the trio made another $97,566 in purchases at the same store on Dec. 12 and Dec. 13.

Johal, authorities said, faces an additional charge for second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument after allegedly being found with an out-of-state driver’s license that belonged to someone else.

Police also charged Watson with three counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument after officers found he was in possession of eight phony credit cards, a news release said.

The three men were scheduled to appear Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead for arraignment.
