Fontana Man Allegedly Uses Stolen Credit Cards to Buy Pizza

Fontana Police Department

Anthony Zaragoza, 35, allegedly used stolen credit card numbers to buy and deliver $1,500 worth of pizza to his home.

A Fontana man accused of using stolen credit card numbers to purchase pizza pies was served with an unwanted delivery on Tuesday: a search warrant.

Anthony Zaragoza, 35, allegedly used the numbers to buy and deliver pizza to his home on the 14000 block of Woodland Drive on 13 separate occasions, authorities said.

Officials said the alleged pizza bandit spent more than $1,500 on the pies over a three-month period.

The search warrant also turned up several stolen credit card account numbers and personal profiles at Zaragoza’s residence, police said.

Officials said Zaragoza was arrested at his home and faces felony charges of credit card fraud and identity theft.

If convicted, Zaragosa could face more than two years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

Authorities said he is currently being held at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.

The state attorney general’s office estimates more than 1.6 million Californians were victims of identity theft in 2013.

Tips for preventing identity theft include protecting your PIN number, storing protected information in a safe place and paying attention to your billing cycles.
