A Long Island mail carrier is accused of pinching thousands of discount coupons intended for residents' mailboxes.

Police accuse 38-year-old Thomas Tang of Baldwin of stealing more than 7,000 J.C. Penny discount coupons he was supposed to deliver to the department store's customers.

Police say Tang then sold the coupons on eBay.

The alleged theft occurred between October 2009 and January of this year.

Tang was charged with grand larceny. He is to be arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead on Friday.

It was not immediately clear if he had obtained a lawyer.
