Stolen credit card leads to arrest of Kamloops man

May 26, 2016 - 9:05 AM

KAMLOOPS - A local man has been arrested and is facing stolen property charges after using a stolen credit card to make hundreds of dollars in online purchases.

The 30-year-old Kamloops man is alleged to have broken into two separate vehicles, including one on River Street where identification and credit cards were stolen on May 19. The stolen credit cards were then used to purchase roughly $700 in clothing from an online store, which was delivered to a residence on Alberni Avenue.

When RCMP searched the Alberni residence on May 20 they found the items stolen from the vehicle on River Street as well as another vehicle the day before.

The man was arrested in the residence and now faces charges of use of a stolen credit card and possession of stolen property. He will appear in court on June 9.
