Racine police say a 19-year-old man stole his co-worker’s credit card and is now facing over two years in jail.

Adrian Solomon, of Racine, was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Wednesday with three misdemeanor counts of fraudulent of a credit card. If convicted he faces up to 27 months in prison and/or up to $30,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, police were notified July 12 that someone used a man’s credit card without permission, and Solomon’s name was associated with at least one transaction. The man said Solomon is a co-worker, and he may have gotten the man’s credit card number while they were both at work.

Police say Solomon used the card to deposit $180 into his PayPal account, buy $48 worth of Chinese food, and get $38 in sandwiches from a sub shop. When they confronted Solomon about the theft, at first he denied knowing anything about it but eventually admitted writing down the man’s credit card number for the PayPal and Chinese food transactions. Solomon said he burned the paper with the number on it and said he didn’t know anything about buying sandwiches.

Solomon was assigned a $300 signature bond at his initial appearance and was ordered to not have any contact with the man whose card he is accused of stealing. He will next be in court Aug. 11 for a pre-trial conference.
