Cops: Homeless Man Used Stolen Credit Card To Pay For Pedicure

DEBARY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — Volusia County authorities say a homeless man used a stolen credit card to get himself a pedicure.

Jonah Lee Troutman, 27, was arrested last Saturday and charged with illegal use of a credit card and petty theft.

According to a police report obtained by CBS Tampa, Troutman went to Nancy’s Nails after he found a credit card lying on the ground.

When he went to pay for the pedicure he just received, the credit card declined the transaction.

When police arrived at the scene, Troutman informed them that he found the card lying near the road and that “finding it was a blessing from god,” the report stated.

Troutman is currently being held at Volusia County Corrections.
