Cocoa Beach Police public information officer Major Jay Harmon said Jody Lewis Field, 37, of 200 St. Lucie Lane #202 in Cocoa Beach was taken into custody and charged with three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, three counts of burglary to a vehicle, two counts of grand theft and a count of petty theft.

Field was identified from video surveillance of a subject involved in a series of fraudulent credit card transactions on Oct. 9.

At about 1:30 p.m. Oct. 9 a fraudulent purchase was made at the Sunoco gas station at 5625 N. Atlantic Avenue in Cocoa Beach and the card was later used at other locations in the area that day.

Harmon said the charges stem from a series of vehicle burglaries that started around Sept. 3 at various locations along Cocoa Beach.

“Though Field has been charged in these cases, detectives continue to investigate to determine whether other subjects were involved or additional victims exist,” Harmon said.

Field is being held at the Brevard County Jail on a $47,000 bond.

Anyone with information is asked to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS. (8477)  Callers may remain anonymous and can be eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000.
