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