Deputies, on Saturday, arrested a suspect wanted for credit card theft and forgery.

Richard Rogers, 33, was booked into the Pima County jail in connection with the July burglary of a Foothills home and subsequent use of a stolen credit card, according to a news release from the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

The burglary occurred sometime between July 8 and 12 at a home in the 7300 block of North Oldfather Drive near West Ina Road, when the homeowner was out of town, according to the sheriff’s department.

The stolen credit card was used at numerous businesses after the theft, including a Circle K and a Walmart where Rogers was caught on surveillance cameras, the news release stated.

Other items, including weapons, were taken during the burglary, as well.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
