A Cobourg man faces credit card theft and fraud charges following an investigation by police this summer.

Police say more than $2,000 was withdrawn from the victim’s bank count.

The investigation led to the arrest of a suspect on Thursday.

Chris Bodmore, 35, of Cobourg, was charged with theft under $5,000, four counts of possession of property obtained by crime and three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.
