Man Charged With Credit Card Fraud in Greenwich

An Elmont, N.Y., man was arrested after allegedly using a fraudulent credit card to try to buy a laptop. Kareem Harris, 22, of 92 King Court left a Post Road store quickly when he was asked to verify the card’s authenticity.

Harris told Greenwich police he tried to buy the laptop with a credit card that was not his. He said someone gave him the card, but he could not remember who loaned it to him, police said. When the card did not go through, he left the store and threw away the card. Another laptop computer was found in his car, which police found had been purchased with the fraudulent card.

He was arrested on charges of criminal attempt at larceny, criminal attempt at illegal use of credit card, larceny and interfering with police. He was being held on $10,000 bond and is due in court May 27.

• Scott Travers, 25, of 89 Prince St., Boston, was arrested early Friday on drunken driving charges after he was stopped while allegedly speeding on North Street.
