Kwan Johnson, 29, of the Bronx, N.Y. , was charged with unlawful reproduction of credit cards, conspiracy to commit reproduction of a credit card, illegal use of a credit card and conspiracy to commit illegal use of a credit card. His bond was set at $75,000. 

He was arrested Friday after New Canaan Police traveled to the Monmouth County, N.J., Sheriff's Office to pick him up. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

The investigation began Sept. 25, 2014, when officers were called to Walgreens on Pine Street for an investigation into possible credit card fraud during the purchase of gift cards, police said. Police said they were able to interview Johnson and that the fraudulent credit cards used had multiple victims stretching as far away as Colorado. 

Police obtained an arrested warrant for Johnson and were able to execute it Friday.
