A Hagerstown man who authorities allege charged $1,600 in electronics on another person's credit card was being held on $15,000 bond Monday, Washington County Sheriff's deputies said.

Deputies said Robert Ray Davis, 28, of 55 Elizabeth St., was charged with one count each of stealing a credit card and retaining a lost credit card; four counts of making charges less than $300 on a stolen credit card; six counts each of signing a receipt for a stolen credit card and misuse of credit card numbers, and two counts of making charges more than $300 on a stolen credit card.

Deputies said they were notified by Hurley State Bank in Gray, Tenn., that a credit card belonging to Alfred Anderson of Takoma Park, Md., had been used illegally.

Anderson had reported to the bank that his monthly credit card statement included $1,600 in charges for December 1999 that he did not make, deputies said.

Three color television sets, a karaoke machine and a RCA stereo were charged to the credit card between Dec. 3, 1999, and Dec. 12, 1999, at Valley Mall Radio Shack, deputies said.

Deputies said the merchandise purchased with the credit card was sold at area pawn shops.

Davis was arrested Monday at 7:50 a.m. at his home on an outstanding warrant issued Sept. 22 by a Washington County District Court Commissioner. He was being held at the Washington County Detention Center.
