A Pennsylvania man implicated himself in a crime when he repeatedly signed “thief” after using a stolen credit card.

According to police, Marc Latimore, 28, stole a credit card from a woman who gave him a ride in her car.

After allegedly buying a $200 at the Metro PCS store in Butler, just north of Pittsburgh, he allegedly spent $42 on beer and cigarettes at Butler Beer & Tobacco Store.

Both times he signed the receipt as “thief.”

Butler police were able to track down Latimore after the credit card was reported stolen when surveillance footage from the two stores matched the victim’s description of him.

Police then called him on the phone he purchased and further confirmed his identity.

Latimore was charged with receiving stolen property and theft by deception.
