Man arrested for spending spree after finding wallet in Bradlee Shopping Center parking lot

A 31-year-old Fairfax County man was arrested for credit card theft and fraud last month after allegedly finding a wallet in the parking lot of the Bradlee Shopping Center and going on a spending spree.

On May 24, the male victim reported to police that he was the victim of fraud after losing his wallet in the parking lot. He said that someone made $423.99 and $1,097 purchases at a Target store in Falls Church, and then $314.96 at a T-Mobile store at 247 S. Van Dorn Street.

Police went to both the Target and T-Mobile stores and saw surveillance footage of the suspect buying numerous products and then driving away in a blue Honda Accord, according to a search warrant affidavit. They then looked up the car’s license plate number and saw that the car belonged to the suspect’s wife.

Police called the suspect’s wife, who provided them with her husband’s phone number, according to the affidavit.

The suspect was arrested on August 8 and charged with credit card theft and credit card fraud. He was released on bond the same day.
