Two men have been arrested in connection with a monthslong grand larceny operation that netted $4,000 in stolen goods from the Home Depot in Syosset, Nassau police said Monday.

Praimchand Seecharan, 46, of Richmond Hill, charged with third-degree grand larceny, surrendered to police Monday. He was arraigned later in the day at First District Court in Hempstead, police said.

Seecharan took items from the home improvement retailer without paying between May and July, officers said.

Police said that at least once Seecharan paid Home Depot employee Roneil Harisaran, 44, of Roslyn, $500 not to ring up select items at a checkout line.

An internal store investigation disclosed the value of items taken in the incidents over time were worth more than $4,000, and on Aug. 2, Harisaran was arrested by detectives at the store.

Harisaran was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny and first-degree falsifying records. He was arraigned in First District Court on Aug. 3, police said. He was released without bail soon after arraignment, but is due back in court Friday.
