Dominic Alesci -- who is already accused of breaking into a Mentor home on Wednesday -- now faces new charges on a different case.
Also on Wednesday, Alesci is accused of breaking into a car in the 8400 block of Mentor Avenue and stealing a credit card, check and phone, Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said.
Then Alesci took the credit card to a nearby Drugmart and tried to withdraw money but was refused, Allen said.
Finally, Alesci tore up the check and hid the credit card and phone.
After Alesci was arrested Wednesday on an unrelated charge, he took police to where he hid the credit card and phone and they were recovered.
Alesci was charged with three counts of theft and one count of misuse of a credit card.
Alesci already faces burglary and theft charges from another case.
In this other case, a man entered his parents' Mentor house Wednesday and saw Alesci trying to steal the television, police said. Alesci is also accused of stealing prescription drugs, cameras and an mp3 player from the house.
Alesci dropped the TV and tried to run away but the man tackled him to the floor. At that point, Alesci introduced himself. He was -- at least at one point -- a friend of a different family member, Mentor Police Lt. Tom Powers said.
The man let Alesci stand up but, when he called the police, Alesci ran away and escaped.
Alesci, 21, has no fixed address but he has been staying in a mobile home park in Mentor.
Police went to the park and arrested Alesci Wednesday.
