WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- A Marietta man has been charged with four recent car break-ins in Cherokee County.

Angelo Rivens was taken into custody last Thursday. The 54 year old faces four charges of entering auto and 30 counts of credit card fraud.

Cherokee County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jay Baker said Rivens is accused of stealing wallets and purses from the four cars when they were parked at Hobgood Park in Woodstock. The break-ins happened between Oct. 12 and Oct. 17.

"It doesn't appear Rivens forced his way into any of the vehicles parked at Hobgood Park," Baker said in a statement, adding that people should take care to always lock their car doors.

Rivens used credit and debit cards from the stolen wallets at a number of stores in Cherokee and Cobb counties, Baker said. Investigators used video surveillance from the stores to identify the suspect and his car.

Police executed a search warrant at Rivens' home and found several items he reportedly bought with the stolen cards, including electronics and cigarettes.

Rivens is being held in the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center on $98,784 bond.
