SIOUX CITY | A Sioux City man turned himself in Wednesday, hours after the Sioux City Police Department had posted social media images of him using a stolen credit card.

Lesandro Alvizo-Allison, 18, was arrested on charges of forgery, unauthorized use of a credit card and third-degree theft.

He is accused of using a stolen credit card to make purchases at several Sioux City businesses. On Tuesday, the Sioux City Police Department posted a video on its Facebook page, asking for the public's assistance to identify a person seen using a stolen credit card on surveillance video from Shoe Carnival and the Wal-Mart store on Singing Hills Boulevard.

According to court documents, the victim lost her wallet and contents on Dec. 10 while eating at a Sioux City restaurant. Charges began to appear on her credit card later that day.

After he turned himself in, Alvizo-Allison admitted to police that he received stolen credit cards from a friend and charged a total of $815.08. He also told police he had a methamphetamine problem and that he turned himself in at the urging of a family member, court documents said.
