Alleged Credit Card Thief Signs Name On Receipts

(AP) Iowa City police say they didn't have much trouble finding a man accused of using a stolen credit card _ he signed his own name to the receipts.

Police said the man used the stolen credit card to buy a latte at a coffee house and to buy cigarettes at a tobacco store. Police said the credit card was reported stolen from an unlocked apartment last month.

They said the man also tried to use it at another store, but the card was declined because it came up as stolen. He also used the card at a local deli.

He has been charged with four counts of unauthorized use of a credit card.
