TRUMBULL — A delivery driver for Amazon is facing multiple charges after police said he used stolen credit cards to make several thousand dollars in payments to eBay and PayPal.

Police said they received a larceny complaint shortly after noon on Dec. 7. The man told police he had purchased a drink at Super Stop & Shop, and realized about 30 minutes later that he did not have his wallet.

He went back to the store and reported the missing wallet. Reviewing the security cameras, store employees saw the man dropped his wallet in the parking lot, police said. The footage then showed a man wearing an Amazon uniform pick up the wallet, police said. The man was driving a Hertz rental van with New Jersey plates, police said.

Police said the victim was then notified by his credit card companies about transactions to eBay and PayPal. Police said a total of more than $2,000 was charged.

Police said they identified the suspect as Ashan Cox, 23, of Waterbury. Police said Cox was working as a delivery driver for Amazon and was arrested at the end of his shift.

Cox was charged with sixth-degree larceny, third-degree larceny, criminal impersonation, third-degree identity theft, illegal use of a credit card and receiving goods through illegal use of a credit card. He was released on a promise to appear in court Jan. 20.
