Credit card thief in Tucson buys $20K in items

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities are looking for a credit card thief in Tucson who made $20,000 in purchases in just 10 hours.

Pima County sheriff's investigators say the man obtained a membership to an LA Fitness gym in Tucson to gain access to the locker room facilities and steal the credit cards.

Authorities say two credit cards were stolen on Dec. 30.

In a 10-hour span, investigators say the man bought an expensive watch, clothes, electronics and food.

Authorities say the suspect also frequented other LA Fitness gyms in the Tucson area and in Phoenix and Scottsdale.

Sheriff's officials have a description of the man and they say he may speak with a Russian accent.
