A man and woman were accused Wednesday of trying to buy almost $4,000 worth of jewelry with a stolen credit card, Nassau police said.

Police said they got a 911 call from Zuckerman's Jewelry in Merrick Wednesday afternoon reporting a larceny. Officers said that Jason Triolo, 33, and Beth Aniello, 33, tried to buy $3,900 worth of jewelry with a stolen credit card and identification that belonged to a 57-year-old woman. The pair had stolen her belongings from her car when it was parked at South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside, police said.

Triolo and Aniello also had property that was reported stolen at Jones Beach, police said.

The pair, who both live at 1407 Newbridge Rd. in Bellmore, was found on Frankel Boulevard, just south of Merrick Road, and arrested.

Both were charged with third-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Triolo was additionally charged with two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny, possession of burglar tools and another count of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Triolo and Aniello were both arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
