An Alexandrin man with a long history of credit card theft has been arrested after a string of recent incidents at local businesses in the city.

The 60-year-old suspect was arrested on Feb. 4, and is being held without bond on numerous credit card theft charges, as well as other larceny charges.

The Alexandria Police Department was dispatched to the CVS at 1680 Duke Street on Sunday, January 8, at around 4:45 p.m. for a call referencing stolen credit cards being used. Police saw surveillance footage showing the suspect allegedly trying to buy gift cards with credit cards that were stolen from a purse in Theissman’s Restaurant (1800 Diagonal Road), according to a recently released search warrant affidavit.

The man was also caught on surveillance footage stealing a purse at Piece Out Del Ray (2419 Mount Vernon Avenue) on Jan. 15, and then another purse at Matt & Tony’s (1501 Mount Vernon Avenue) on Jan. 21. He is also accused of stealing a backpack from Delia’s (209 Hoffman Street) on Jan. 22, and then using keys from inside the backpack to allegedly steal the owner’s 2020 Toyota Corolla, according to the search warrant affidavit.

The stolen car was found parked in front of the suspect’s car at his home, according to the search warrant affidavit.

The suspect was convicted of credit card theft in 2014, and spent nearly four years in jail before being released in July 2018.

The suspect was charged with multiple counts of credit card fraud, obtaining credit card numbers, five counts of petit larceny, grand larceny and grand larceny auto. He goes to court on March 1.
