A 23-year-old Crothersville man is facing felony charges for fraud and receiving stolen property following his arrest by state and Crothersville police last Wednesday, June 25.
Ryan Kevin Mull of 203 Dismore Street in Crothers-ville was arrested by ISP officers Randel Miller & Kevin Riodan and Crothersville Chief of Police Richard Hanlin.
The arrest came after Mull allegedly used a deceased person’s credit card to make internet purchases as well as merchandise at Home Depot in Seymour.
Miller reported on June 4, he was assigned to investigate a report of a fraud on a deceased person’s credit card account. He said the card had been used for approximately six months following the death of the cardholder.
ISP officers worked with asset investigators from Home Depot and were able to identify the suspect making a purchase through the store’s video surveillance system. Mull allegedly made purchases amounting to over $6,000 over a two month period.
Police obtained a search warrant for Mull’s residence and some of the merchandise purchased was found, police reported.
Mull was booked into the Jackson County Jail around 10:30 a.m. where he now faces five counts of fraud and receiving stolen property in Jackson Circuit Court.
