Police: Man used stolen card for pizza

Police allege a city man used a stolen credit card to buy more than $1,000 in pizza and wings.

Joshua A.P. Spriggs, 20, of 820 Jade Ave., allegedly gleaned the numbers from a credit card and used the stolen information to make 52 purchases between Feb. 26 and July 6, according to Altoona police.

Spriggs racked up a total of $2099.69, including $1,174.33 with Domino’s Pizza.

Police said Spriggs used the stolen credit card 36 times at Domino’s Pizza. He also spent $142.20 at Pizza Hut, police noted. Spriggs also allegedly bought items from Cool Glow, GLE, Spencer’s and LIDS.

Spriggs also used the stolen information to buy minutes for his cellphone. Police were then able to trace that phone to orders made to Domino’s Pizza and Pizza Hut, as well as other companies where he used the card’s numbers, according to police.

Spriggs was arraigned Friday by Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey Auker on felony access device fraud, theft and receiving stolen property charges and released on a $5,000 unsecured bond. A preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Todd Kelly at Central Court is scheduled for Wednesday.
