Police didn’t have much trouble finding a man accused of using a stolen credit card — he signed his own name on one of the receipts.

The 21-year-old Iowa City man is accused of using the credit card to buy a latte at a coffee house and to buy cigarettes at a tobacco store. When he used the allegedly stolen credit card to buy the smokes, he signed the receipt with his own signature.
