Deputies: Livonia man stole credit card in mail, racked up $8,000 in charges
Livonia, N.Y. (WHAM) - A man from Livonia was arrested Sunday for allegations that he had stolen another man's credit card and racked up thousands of dollars in charges.
On November 1, the Livingston County Sheriff's Office received a call from a man in North Carolina, saying his credit card had been compromised and was used to buy more than $8,000 in merchandise.
The investigators on the case determined that the victim had recently moved to North Carolina from Livonia and been sent a new credit card in the mail. The credit card was mailed to his former residence, however.
The current homeowner, 57-year-old Robert Mastowski, used the credit card at several locations without the former homeowner's consent.
Mastowski was arrested Sunday and charged with felony grand larceny 4th and identity theft 1st.
He was arraigned in the Town of Livonia Court and remanded to the Livingston County Jail in $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
