ORANGE, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man is facing charges after police say he stole more than $22,000 from a family member.

The Connecticut Post reports 36-year-old Noah Tarifi, of Orange, is charged with two counts of first-degree theft, two counts of criminal impersonation, first-degree forgery, credit card theft and illegal use of a credit card.

Police say Tarifi stole checks and a credit card from the family member and went on a shopping spree. Police say he purchased more than $13,000 worth of merchandise and then sold it for cash. They say he also cashed $9,000 in checks.

Tarifi is being held on a $35,000 bond.
