A 39 year-old man has been arrested on Theft and Fraud charges

Brandon Police say, back on November 6, 2019, in the 100 block of 7th Street, a vehicle window was smashed, and a purse from within the vehicle was stolen.

He then used the tap function on the credit cards to make purchases at three separate locations.

Video surveillance of the incident assisted officers in finding out the identity of the suspect.

He was to appear in court Friday (Nov 15) on charges of Mischief to Property Under $5000, Theft Under $5000, and Fraudulent Use of Credit Card X 3.
