A Queens man pocketed more than $5,000 after he rented out two Long Island residences on Craigslist without the owners’ permission, police said.

Terrell Hill, 31, of Jamaica, posted an ad on Craigslist, pretending to be the homeowner of a Valley Stream residence, and rented the place to two women, authorities said. He charged the pair $1,500 as a down payment, but when the rightful homeowner came to check on the residence on Wednesday and found the women, the cops were called.

The same day, Hill went to the home to collect more money from the renters and was arrested.

Police said they later discovered Hill also rented another unoccupied residence, a home in Elmont, to a woman on Aug. 1. Again, he pretended to be the homeowner, and collected $3,800 from the renter.

Hill has been charged with grand larceny and burglary.

Anyone who believes they may have also been victimized by Hill should call 516-573-6453.
