Police on Long Island say two thieves had a long run using invalid, expired coupons at Target stores.

Ali Jaafar, 33, and Hassan Soueidan, 28, are accused of scamming Target of close to $600,000.

Some cashiers reportedly were given a gift card in return for ringing up the illicit transactions.

Police say other cashiers were coerced into scanning the coupons.
