(JACKSON CO.) - Wednesday, Indiana State Police arrested a Crothersville man charging him with numerous felonies for allegedly using a deceased person’s credit card.

According to Trooper Randel Miller, on June 4, he made contact with the credit card company and through his investigation learned the card had been used for approximately six months following the death of the card holder. The investigation revealed internet purchases were made as well as purchases from Home Depot in Seymour.
