cops credit card fraud

A Salisbury man has been charged with multiple counts of identity fraud and credit card fraud after authorities say he used his mother’s credit history to obtain credit cards.
Randall Dean Smith, 40, of 240 Gallimore Road was being held in the Rowan County Detention Center on Monday with bond set at $20,000.
According to warrants issued by Magistrate Fred Moore, Smith fraudulently obtained Discover, Visa and MasterCard credit cards, a Home Depot card and a BP gasoline card.
From Nov. 20 through Feb. 7 he ran up charges in excess of $500 on each card, according to the warrants.
Deputy G. S. Henline charged Smith with five felony counts of financial card fraud and five counts of identity fraud.
According to Henline’s statements, Smith used the credit history of his mother, Betty Kluttz Livengood, of Salisbury.
Smith’s first appearance in Rowan District Court is scheduled today.
