Man held in alleged credit card spree
A 52-year-old Irvine man was arrested on multiple suspicions after officers were called to the Casa Del Camino at 1:50 p.m. Saturday for a report of credit card fraud, Kravetz said. When police arrived, a couple who had lost a purse at Brooks Street beach Christmas Day was in the lobby.
Officers located the suspect, Ronald Eric Ronneburger, at the hotel. Ronneburger had allegedly checked into the hotel using a credit card from the purse. He then had drinks at the hotel and also at the Sandpiper, charging everything on cards from the purse. The charges at the hotel were $200, and $110 was charged at the Sandpiper.
