NYACK, N.Y. -- A 21-year-old Nyack man is facing four charges stemming from allegedly stealing a wallet in late July.

According to the Orangetown Police Department, Freddie Mendoza allegedly stole a man's wallet in Nyack, impersonated the victim in a Nyack store and tried to make purchases using a credit card from the wallet.

Store employees thought Mendoza was acting suspiciously, however, and called the police.

When officers arrived, they determined he wasn't the person he was impersonating--and found the stolen credit card and license.

Mendoza was arrested and charged with two felonies -- grand larceny and possession of stolen property -- and two misdemeanors -- a lesser charge of possession of stolen property and criminal impersonation.

He is next due in court on Sept. 13. He currently has a public defender.
