FELTON, Del. – A Viola man is facing felony fraud charges after using someone else’s credit card multiple times without permission.

Felton Police opened an investigation against 41-year-old Irving B. Golt on October 8th, 2021. Police say a man had contacted them, saying Golt had used his credit card on several occasions without his knowledge. Investigators were able to identify Golt as a suspect and issued warrants for his arrest.

Police say Golt worked for the victim and stole the credit card after being fired. Golt turned himself into Felton Police without incident, and was charged with multiple crimes. Those charges include unlawful use of a payment card under $1,500 on a victim 62 years or older, theft by false pretense under $1,500 on a victim 62 years or older, and second degree conspiracy.

Golt was arraigned via video phone by Justice of the Peace Court #2. He was released on his own recognizance, pending a later court date. The court issued a no contact order between Golt and the victim.
