An Olds man allegedly attempting to use a stolen credit card has been released from custody after being charged with several fraud-related offences.

Olds RCMP were called to a town business on Friday to a report of a 39-year-old man attempting to use the card. When police arrived they arrested the man and as the investigation continued, documents were seized allegedly linking the man to other fraud-related offences that have occurred in Olds and surrounding communities.

Morgan Stephen Winter faces 21 charges including possession of a stolen credit card, using a forged document and fraud. During the offences, police said the name Robert Gallaher had been used as an alias. Winter has been released following a bail hearing and his next court date is set for Dec. 16 in Didsbury provincial court.

Olds RCMP suspect there may be other occurrences throughout the Olds and Didsbury region. Any possible victims or anyone with more information is asked to call Olds RCMP detachment at 403-556-3324.
