CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police have captured a "Most Wanted" suspect who they say broke into multiple cars and stole half a dozen credit cards.

Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said 35-year-old Deon Antonio Rambert was arrested on Sunday and charged with financial transaction card forgery on Tuesday.

According to an incident report, Rambert was stopped by police at the corner of Poplar and King Streets in downtown Charleston on April 9, 2012 around 9:50 p.m. After agreeing to a search, police found Rambert to be in possession of credit cards that were not in his name.

Police say the cards were not reported as stolen at the time, so Rambert was not arrested.

According to the report, the cards were reported the following day to have been stolen during two break-ins in Mt. Pleasant.

"He's very lucky that night because if those cards had been reported stolen at that particular time, he would have been arrested on the spot," said Cpl. Fred Bowie with the Charleston Police Department.
