A Brooklyn man was charged with using fraudulent credit cards to buy gift cards and other items at nine grocery stores in Nassau County, police said Wednesday.

Nassau detectives arrested Joshua Slew, 23, of Chauncey Street on Wednesday on several counts of grand larceny, police said in a news release.

Slew is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in First District Court in Hempstead on third-degree larceny charges stemming from a series of thefts in Stop & Shop supermarkets, according to Crimes Against Property detectives.

Police said the stores lost about $6,000.

Slew was identified through photos taken when he visited the stores, police said. It was unclear whether Slew had retained an attorney.
