Niles police say suspect was using credit card stolen from man attending funeral

Posted: Updated:
NILES, Ohio -

Niles police have filed charges against a man whom they say was using a credit card that was stolen from a car during a funeral.

19-year-old Brandon M. Haun is charged with receiving stolen property, forgery and misuse of a credit card.

Investigators consider Haun a suspect in several thefts from cars that occurred in the past few weeks.

Authorities identified Haun after publicizing surveillance images of a man using a stolen credit card at several businesses in the city.

Police say the victim in this particular case had his wallet taken from his car while it was parked for a funeral at Rossi Funeral Home on Robbins Avenue.

Investigators are still looking for Haun, saying he was last known to be staying at 21 Lafayette Avenue in Niles, but may have moved.
