From the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office:
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested a convicted felon with a history of fraud on new charges for opening credit card accounts in other people's names.
Detectives responded to a home on Huron Lane in Sarasota, earlier this month when the Department of Probation and Parole found Oliver Locke, DOB 9/26/83, was in possession of credit cards and receipts for purchases made in other people's names. They determined Locke traveled to California to make some of the purchases and arrested him for violating probation.
Detectives continued the investigation and contacted American Express, which confirmed the cards were fraudulent and that at least seven accounts were opened in two names and the cards shipped to a Sarasota address. Locke charged $34,485 on some of those accounts, and is charged with Scheme to Defraud in excess of $20,000.

Locke is the same man who Deputies with the Fugitive Apprehension Unit tracked to California last year when he violated probation after serving a two year prison sentence for nine counts of Credit Card Fraud and Extortion. At the time Locke was extradited to Sarasota County and sentenced to 30 days in jail plus probation.
