WARSAW, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Police have arrested the man they were looking for involved in alleged credit card thefts and fraud.

On Friday, May 10th, 2013 a victim called Warsaw Police to report three of her credit cards stolen. The resulting investigation indicated that Christopher B. Clapp, 30, was responsible for the theft and use of the credit cards. Over $515.00 in cash and cigarettes was obtained before the cards were cancelled.

For a week prior to the thefts, the suspect had been renting a room from the victim. The suspect was tracked to a local hotel, but had left before police arrived. He was located Thursday after a request for public assistance was sent out Wednesday.

Clapp was also wanted on two felony warrants in Mansfield, Ohio for theft and aggravated assault, as well as Missoula County, Montana, for felony theft.
