Man Left Stolen Credit Cards in Rental Car: Police

Port Authority officials say they have arrested a New York City man after he left a bag full of stolen credit cards in his rental car.

Officials said Saturday that 33-year-old Carl Black was arrested on charges of identity theft, grand larceny and 28 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Black rented a car at Kennedy Airport on Sept. 15 but did not return it.

After Port Authority officials later retrieved the car near Black's home, they found a bag inside containing several credit cards belonging to other people.

Black then called to claim the bag and Port Authority police set up a sting.

The officers posed as Enterprise car rental employees. Police say Black was arrested when he signed papers claiming the car and bag were his.
