OREM, Utah (AP) -- A 21-year-old Orem man is accused of stealing his roommate's credit card to buy several things -- including an engagement ring for his girlfriend.

Authorities say the man was arrested on Tuesday after attempting to make a limousine reservation.

Court records say the suspect's roommate reported his credit card stolen back in June. Since then, the suspect has allegedly used the credit card more than 35 times.

According to court documents, the suspect told police he was the only one who had used the card.

The suspect is already on probation for nine counts of credit card fraud.
