Bartlesville Man Arrested For Burglary
Washington County Associate District Judge Russell Vaclaw held a probable cause hearing Wednesday afternoon for 37-year old Joshua Alan Chopra (show-pra) who was arrested for burglary, credit card theft, false impersonation to create liability, fraud, and obtaining merchandise by false pretenses. A woman contacted Bartlesville police to report that her credit cards were stolen. According to a court affidavit, the alleged crime took place at Tallgrass Estates where the victim left her purse in her mother's room and went to lunch. Reportedly, the woman received notices from the credit card company and that $1,324.33 was used at Wal-Mart and $1,000 was spent at Lowes. A video at Wal-Mart and Lowes identified Chopra. The affidavit states that Chopra worked as a maintenance man at Tallgrass and had master keys to the building and the rooms. Chopra's next court date is Thursday afternoon when charges are expected to be filed. Bond was set at $25,000.
