A former Long Island CVS worker was charged with possessing forged COVID-19 vaccination cards that police say he planned to distribute to family and friends, a report and police said.
Zachary Honig, 21, was busted Tuesday in East Garden City after cops found 62 of the vaccine cards, brass knuckles and a controlled substance inside his car, according to Nassau County police.
Eight of the 62 cards were already pre-filled, cops said.
Honig is accused of stealing them from his job at CVS, Nassau County Police Commissioner Pat Ryder said at a Thursday press briefing, according to the Long Island Press.
Ryder said Honig planned to give the cards to people close to him so they could gain entry to locations that require coronavirus vaccinations, the report said.
Honig is not believed to have given out any of the forged cards, according to Ryder.
Police charged Honig with eight counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a weapon and petit larceny.
