Dylan Syer -- who is 29 years old -- was reportedly hired in 2015 to buy the Ride Along actor's personal items, but according to Queens County District Attorney Melinda Katz, he ended up spending $1.2 million on luxury items that he shipped to his own home address.

Katz also claims Syer was using Hart's credit cards to send cash to his personal bank account over a 19-month time period.

Syer appeared before the court virtually on Thursday with a full beard. He was seen wearing glasses and a plain gray crew neck.

According to Katz, Hart found Syer in 2015 through his personal shopping business, Sire Consulting. Between October 2017 and February 2019, he allegedly used the actor's credit card for unauthorized purchases totaling more than $1 million.

"The defendant thought he was beyond reach and was living out his uber-rich lifestyle fantasies," Katz said. "But my team uncovered the bogus purchases - from the credit card charges being processed by the bank, down to tracking FedEx packages delivered to Syer's home and business," Katz said at the time of his arrest.
