A Corinth man has been charged with grand larceny and credit card fraud in separate cases, police say.
Christopher Wallis, 22, allegedly used two credit cards that were reported stolen in a Hardin County burglary, said Detective Heather Russell of the Corinth Police Department.
Wallis allegedly purchased a Nintendo system and a videogame and got $40 cash back for a total of $210. Store video surveillance identified Wallis as a suspect, Russell noted.
The cards were allegedly stolen June 22, and Wallis is accused of using the cards in Corinth on the same day.
There were attempts to make charges at a few other businesses, but the purchases were declined, Russell said.
Wallis is also a suspect in a separate grand larceny case in which he is accused of stealing a wallet and a 40-caliber handgun from a vehicle that was at his 718 Main St. residence, Russell said. The wallet reportedly contained approximately $2,300 in cash.
Wallis was named a suspect in the grand larceny and turned himself into Corinth Police on Sunday, Russell said.
He remained in Alcorn County Jail on Friday morning.
