Police have arrested one of the suspects in a counter swiping crime spree. 38-year-old Michael Shawn Billups was arrested on Wednesday by State Police in Braxton County for a driving offense, and when they contacted Glenville Police that's when the charges started to pile up.

Captain Jeremy Jenkins said they matched the surveillance photos from the crime back in June to Billups. He's accused of scamming several stores.

He's charged with two counts of fraudulent schemes and two counts of conspiracy. Additional charges are pending out of other counties.
