Not the in-store pickup a Scarborough man was hoping for.

Regional Police arrested a 29-year old in connection with what they allege to be a fraudulent credit application at a Kitchener business.

Police said last Thursday afternoon, the man went into the business on Huron Road and tried to buy about $8,000 worth of merchandise, using "a pre-approved finance application."

But they note workers at the store quickly became suspicious of the man's identity.

The next day, the man went back to the store to pick up his purchases, but was instead arrested by police.

"At the time of arrest, he was in possession of identity documents not in his name," police said, "Police seized the documents along with the vehicle the accused was driving, as the vehicle had two different licence plates and the accused could not verify the owner."

Police said the 29-year old is facing a number of fraud charges, and the investigation is ongoing.
