A man is behind bars, accused of stealing a credit card, check and two credit card readers.

Abelardo Arellano is facing fraud charges.

Police say the items were discovered by his wife inside a tote bag at their home. A report states Arellano’s wife came to police with a tote bag that belonged to him. A notebook was inside the tote with several people's names, date of birth and Social Security numbers. Arellano’s wife said he told her he had recently gotten involved in hacking.

Police suspect that some of the items were from co-workers at Brooke Army Medical Center where Arellano worked. The report says a surgeon over at BAMC reported his jacket was missing and that a credit card and check were stolen.
