PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland man is in jail after being arrested though a joint investigation and now faces over 147 charges of identity theft and fraud.

Titus Marian Pridon, 45, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail Friday.

According to Portland Police Bureau officials, Pridon was using cloned debit cards issued by Chase Bank to take thousands of dollars from ATM’s in Beaverton and Portland.

PPB worked with the Beaverton Police Department, Chase Bank and Fred Meyer stores to discover and arrest Pridon.

Friday the bank contacted detectives about cloned cards being used at ATMs in Beaverton and Portland. An officer spotted the suspect walking with another person away from an ATM located at the Fred Meyer at 14700 Southeast Division Street and get into a gray Mercedes Benz. Using registration information, officers found the vehicle parked at the suspect's residence on Southeast Lincoln Street.

After seeing Pridon leave the home, head back to the ATM and withdraw money again, officers stopped him driving the Mercedes and took him into custody without incident.

A search of Pridon’s home uncovered evidence connected to credit card fraud and identity theft.

Pridon faces three charges of theft, ten counts of aggravated identity theft and 134 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.
