Deputies: Car thief outed himself by using own Footlocker rewards account with stolen credit card

Boone County deputies on Thursday arrested a trio of men accused of stealing six cars from Boone County communities, robbing others and using the money inside to go shopping at the Tri-County Mall.

Deputies said one suspect, 18-year-old Jermaine Brown, tied himself to the crime by using a victim’s credit card at Footlocker but linking the purchase to his own Footlocker rewards account.

Brown, 21-year-old Paul Allen and 19-year-old Matthew Rivera-Fernandez each face multiple felony theft charges.

Brown, who also used two victims’ checkbooks to write himself checks for a total of $1,565, has been charged with two counts of forgery.
