    A trip to Florida may lead to a trip to jail for a man who was busted by police investigators in Connecticut for allegedly using a credit card stolen from a Fairfield County resident.

    The New Canaan Police Department received a complaint from an area resident who had their credit card used by a third party without their permission in November 2019.


    Police said that the illegal use of the credit card was used to purchase a round-trip ticket for Newark to Fort Lauderdale, with Anthony Johnson as the passenger.

    Following the complaint, a warrant was obtained by the New Canaan Police Department for Johnson on multiple charges for illegally using the credit card.

    On Saturday, May 8, the New Canaan Police Department located Johnson, who was taken into custody at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville and transported back to New Canaan Police Headquarters.

    Johnson, age 37, who now lives in Deerfield Beach in Florida, was arrested and charged with identity theft, respect from the illegal use of a credit card, and cited for spending less than $500 on a revoked payment card, police said.

    He was released on a $500 bond and scheduled to make a court appearance later this month to respond to the charges.

    He is still fighting Nemkov right?

    Edit: Yes he is. The crime happened a few years ago, but he just got brought in custody for it. This is info from reddit.

    I wonder if there's some type of explanation for this?

    Straight up stealing someones credit card is pretty pathetic

    A few weeks back I received a message on my phone about someone getting a hold of my info somehow and trying to buy shit using my card, had to cancel it before it got too out of hand. One would've thought Anthony would be above all this.

    I said it when he retired to sell Weed and I'll say it again. Anthony Johnson has to be one of the STUPIDEST Motherfuckers in the game right now, and it's such a shame considering his physical attributes. Dude's a mental headcase that's for sure, he just conducts himself more Introverted than other known trouble makers so he comes across as a "Nicer guy"

    Downright ungrateful and mentally weak to constantly make bad decisions in spite of the people who surround you that want you to do good.

    If he did indeed do this, he’s a really stupid criminal. Using a stolen credit card to buy an airline ticket which has your name attached to it is one of the dumbest things you can do.

    My Amex card generally gets stolen a few times a year. It's my main purchase card so I use it everywhere. Fortunately Amex is amazing to deal with and wipes the slate with minimal effort on my end.
