A dumb thief was arrested for going on a shopping spree with a stolen credit card.

The man of Uniondale, New York, was arrested on Wednesday, for buying four tires worth more than $950 using a stolen credit card, Nassau police said.

21-year-old Jamaar J. Monuma purchased four 18-inch vehicle rims for a total of $975.98 from Black Forest Industries, according to police.

He bought the items with a Capital One Bank credit card, which was stolen. The bank issued a refund to the card owner.

Black Forest Industries then contacted the Nassau County Police Department to help identify the person responsible in hopes to recover the stolen goods.

Detectives conducted an investigation and found that the same Capital One Bank credit card was used to buy food from Papa John’s Pizza on two occasions.

The food order was delivered to a home on Hempstead Boulevard. Police arrested Jamaar J. Monuma, who lives at that address.

He was arrested on Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. without incident, police said. Officers also found the four rimes at the home.

Monuma is facing charges of grand larceny, identity theft and criminal possession of stolen property.
