A Queens man pilfered more than $3,000 worth of merchandise from two Bath & Body Works stores over a monthlong span, Nassau County police said Thursday.

Rohan Esberry, 39, of Nashville Boulevard, Springfield Gardens, is charged with two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny and three counts of petty larceny, police said.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.

Police said the thefts were between Sept. 26 and Wednesday, when he left the Oceanside store at 3559 Long Beach Rd. without paying for $126 worth of merchandise concealed in a bag.

Security officers stopped him outside the store and notified police, according to a news release.

An investigation revealed he also took items from the same Oceanside store on Sept. 26, last Friday and also on Tuesday, police said.

He also hit a Bath & Body Works in East Garden City on Sept. 26; overall, the stores had $3,175 in losses, police said.

Police are still looking for a woman who they say “acted in concert” with Esberry in one of the thefts.
