DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — Authorities in Dare County say they have arrested a man in a case of credit card fraud.

The Dare County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by someone on vacation in Salvo — and was no longer in the area — who noticed that their credit card had been used eight times in four locations.

Hatteras Island Investigators obtained video and photos of the suspect — and authorities arrested 45-year-old Steven Russell Simmons on Thursday.

Simmons is facing felony charges of card theft, card fraud and identity theft. He has been released on a $2,500 secured bond.
