Israel Police arrested a 50-year-old Jerusalem man Wednesday suspected of using stolen credit cards to buy tens of thousands of shekels worth of merchandise.

The suspect, a resident of the city's Abu Tor neighborhood, purchased the items from a variety of businesses under a false identity and later sold the items to businesses over the Green Line.

He will be held in custody for at least a week.
