A local homeless man has been charged with financial transaction card fraud.
Curtis Michael Walker, 45, of Oakdale is scheduled to appear on Jan. 28 in Washington County District Court.
According to the complaint:
On Dec. 30, 2015, Woodbury police responded to a report of unauthorized use of credit cards.
Someone broke into a locker at the YMCA located in the 2100 block of Radio Drive, stole a man's wallet including his credit and debit cards, and made fraudulent purchases at three businesses in Woodbury.
Walker allegedly spent $37.15 at the Holiday Stationstore along Radio Drive, using a stolen card.
At Game Stop along Hudson Road, there was a $487.40 charge.
And then there was a $534.55 purchase at Walmart along Hudson Road.
Walker was recognized at all four businesses, and in a tri-county crime alert received by a Metro Transit police officer.
He has an extensive criminal history, and must check in with the St. Paul Police Department on a weekly basis. Walker was arrested at his next check-in.
