Syracuse man swapped barcodes, fraudulently purchased over $10K in Home Depot merchandise

Apr 7, 2021 | ,

New York State Police say a Syracuse man is facing a number of charges after swapping barcodes on items at a number of Home Depot stores in Central New York.

Jeffrey Gordon, 37, was charged with three counts of fourth-degree grand larceny as well as petit larceny.

The investigation began after loss prevention staff at one of the area stores discovered the scam, where Gordon utilized the self-checkout to ring out the items for purchase, using the dummy barcodes.

Altogether he completed more than 28 fraudulent transactions with a value of around $10,000.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
