UPDATE: A Wichita Falls man is charged with credit card abuse after police say he was arrested in connection to several car burglaries at a local apartment complex.

Between the hours of 11 Monday night and 5:30 Tuesday morning, six cars were broken into at the 3919 apartment complex, formerly known as the Wellington on the Lake Apartments.

Police said multiple items were stolen including cash, electronics, several credit cards, and a gun.

One resident told officers her Mazda CZ-5 was broken into and her American Express credit card was missing and had fraudulent charges on her card on July 8, from the Walmart off Lawrence Road that totaled to more than $745.

After looking at store security footage, officers said they identified Laquinton Talbert, 24, as the suspect using the stolen credit card to buy an X-Box gaming system and a large-screen tv.

They also say Talbert’s girlfriend drove him to Walmart and later posted a new x-box for sale on social media.

Talbert is currently in the Wichita County jail with $5,000 in bonds.
