Damian Davidson, 32, bought four season passes to the Nassau County beach for $140 each, then tried to peddle them on Craigslist for $250 a pop, police said on Facebook.
“With city beaches closed and island beaches being resident only I have family beach passes for Long Beach for sale 250$ (sic) price negotiable passes good all summer,” the ad allegedly said.
When cops caught up to him, he was taken into custody and charged with a second-degree scheme to defraud. He was released pending a future court appearance.
According to the Long Beach website, the city’s beaches opened this weekend for residents only, although non-resident passes purchased before May 20 will be honored.
Family beach passes sell for $70 each, and non-resident family passes for $140 each, according to the site.
Davidson could not be reached for comment Sunday.
