A Queens man was arrested on charges of identity theft Monday after using a fake credit card to make a large purchase at Bloomingdale's in East Garden City, where a store employee recognized him in connection with a similar incident last month, police said.

Nassau County police said Terrell Thompson, 20, of 24-607 137th Rd., Rosedale, was arrested at the store about 8 p.m. He was charged with first-degree identity theft, two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny and six counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument, police said.

He is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Police said that Thompson used a fraudulent credit card to make $1,165 worth of purchases at 6:40 p.m. Monday at Bloomingdale's, where a store employee recognized him as the same man who was suspected of using fraudulent credit cards to make purchases totaling $1,130 at the store on Old Country Road on Oct. 22. The employee called 911. Thompson was located in the store and placed under arrest.

Police said that at the time of his arrest, Thompson was found to be in possession of "numerous fraudulent credit and debit cards."
