Police arrested 37-year-old Timothy Argebright after weeks of allegedly using credit cards he stole from someone's car outside a PNC Bank in London.

"Purchases started coming in on those cards," explained Chief Stewart Walker, of the London Police Department.

From there police say Argebright went on his alleged spree starting London and going to other towns off major highways, including Georgetown, Shelbyville, Columbia, and even the Berea police say they were given a tip to look out for Argebright.

"He's going in and making purchases, then pawning the items," described Chief Walker, of the scheme.

In all, thousands of dollars were racked up on the credit cards, that started back on September 30th. Police say Argebright was identified on a surveillance video while buying items at a convenient store.

Wednesday afternoon, the Somerset police say they got a tip that Argebright was at the Probation and Parole Office in town, and that's where he was arrested. Police say Argebright is on parole for similar charges.

According to online jail records, Argebright is expected to appear in court Friday morning for his charge of Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card. For now, he remains behind bars on a $10,000 bond.

However, the case my not be over, police say that Argebright may have had accomplices.
