Tompkins County Sheriffs deputies investigated several car break-ins last week in the village of Lansing.
The Sheriff reports that someone was entering cars in the middle of the night and stealing things such as credit cards.
Unfortunately, for one alleged thief, he allegedly returned to where he had used one of the stolen credit cards. Deputies say when he tried again to use the stolen card, someone from the store called deputies.
22-year old Marchant Jones of Ithaca was charged with felony theft and the sheriff says there could be other charges.
