A Long Island man accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars will be arraigned in Hempstead Friday.

Authorities say 48-year-old Mark Silverstein, of Elmont, pocketed money from cash sales at Malkin-Rifkin appliances in Baldwin.

He allegedly covered himself by charging credit card numbers on file.

Silverstein is believed to have stolen $345,000 in 2006 and 2007.
