The Nacogdoches County Constable Office Precinct 4 has arrested a Nacogdoches man for credit card abuse.
A spokesperson for the constable office says they have been working an ongoing investigation into several credit card purchases that totaled over $650.00 dollars that Larry Patterson, 29, allegedly made back in March throughout Nacogdoches County.
Officials tell KETK the credit card was stolen from an elderly woman in Nacogdoches County. The constable office was able to track those charges that the suspect made at several different locations. With the help of several stores, they were able to positively identify Patterson through video footage.
Patterson is currently being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail for a separate offense of theft that happened on April 12. A warrant was served at the jail for credit card abuse.
