Paso Robles police arrested a man on suspicion of credit card fraud and it’s not his first time facing such charges.

Police say Christopher James Sprague, 34, used fraudulent credit card numbers to purchase items on the internet and then resold the items on eBay.

Officers say they found numerous unopened items of merchandise in Sprague’s home, including collectibles, clothing, cologne, video games, movies, water filtration devices, baby items, and even hair conditioner.

Police say Sprague was out on bail for similar charges stemming from a previous fraud investigation.

KSBY News reported on his 2015 arrest. In that case, Sprague was accused of stealing credit card information from people in 11 states.

Sprague was booked into county jail on Thursday. Police say he faces multiple charges of credit card fraud, receiving stolen property, and theft.
