A 49-year-old Providence man was arrested by Wareham Police after he allegedly used a stolen credit card to buy $6,000 worth of electrical supplies.

Aldrin Diaz faces charges of receiving stolen property over $1,200 and attempt to commit a crime on January 17th.

Police indicate that a Baynes Electric employee reported that in early January the company took an order from a man for more than $6,000 in electrical supplies. The next day, he picked up the order. Several days later, Baynes Electric received a call from a Californian woman saying she did not authorize the purchase.

Police said the same man called back on January 16th and made another order for more than $6,000 worth of supplies, and said he would pick up the items early the following day. The suspect reportedly charged the purchase to a different credit card number.

Officer Steven Joy, who received the initial report, advised members of the detective division of the developing situation. Detectives then staked out Baynes Electric starting at 5 a.m. At about 8:45 a.m., Diaz arrived to pick up the order in a truck with Rhode Island license plates. As he was loading his vehicle he was approached by the detectives and arrested.

Police continue to investigate the case.
