California man signs plea on credit card theft, paraphernalia charges

October 7, 2018

An Anaheim man signed a plea agreement Sept. 28 on charges of felony credit card theft and possession of drug paraphernalia. Steven W. Robinson, 53, was originally charged with theft, identity theft, theft of a credit card, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the police report, Robinson stole a wallet from an unattended shopping cart at a McCulloch Boulevard business. Employees allegedly attempted to question Robinson shortly after the theft, but Robinson departed before police were contacted. The victim’s wallet was later found, although her credit card and driver’s license were missing, the report said.

Officers located Robinson shortly afterward, the report said. Robinson allegedly admitted to the theft, and a search of his person yielded quantities of suspected heroin and methamphetamine.

Robinson remains in custody at Mohave County Jail, pending a sentencing hearing.
