Ohio police seek man accused in credit card case

LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities are searching for a man they say took credit cards from medical facilities in five counties in southwest Ohio.

Sherriff's detectives in Warren County are asking for the public's help in locating the suspect. They say he used stolen credit cards from facilities in Warren, Clinton, Butler, Montgomery and Hamilton counties to purchase electronics.

Detective Susan Horne tells the Middletown Journal (http://bit.ly/X3mNag ) that purchases made on the Warren County card were about $1,800. She didn't have details on cards from other counties.

She says the man is accused of stealing purses or credit cards left unattended at hospitals and doctor's offices.

The man is wanted for receiving stolen property, forgery and misuse of a credit card.
