BROCKVILLE – For the second time this month, city police are crediting social media with coaxing a suspected criminal to give himself up.
A 43-year-old Brockville man showed up at police headquarters on Parkedale Avenue Wednesday morning to surrender.
He is accused of being the person responsible for fraudulent use of a credit card, originally reported to police on Monday, March 27, 2017.
Investigators had released still images from a security camera on Tuesday (April 25) in hopes of finding a guy responsible for various purchases in the city with a stolen credit card.
The man, who was not named, was released to appear in a court in the near future.
This is the second case this month where Brockville police have been able to apprehend a suspect through security footage within 24-48 hours.
