Police arrested a 36-year-old man early Sunday morning after he lost then tried to retrieve a stolen credit card he had been using.

According to police, the suspect took a taxi to a Waipahu store and purchased several items using a credit card belonging to a 56-year-old man. He attempted to use the card again to buy more items but was denied.

Police said the suspect then used the card to purchase food from an adjoining restaurant. On the way out, he apparently dropped the card.

When he returned to retrieve it, the clerk noticed that he did not match the photo on the back of the card and called police.

The suspect was arrested on suspicion of fraudulent use of a credit card.

The restaurant clerk should have checked the credit card first. Most cards do not have picture ID on the reverse side. Costco/American Express however do so if it is checked first it would help reduce the misuse of credit cards.
