PLYMOUTH - A Terryville man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly stealing his elderly father’s credit card, charging $12,000 to it.

Jack Jablonski, 53, of 11 Lovely St., is facing charges of credit card theft, illegal use of a credit card, obtaining money, goods or services through illegal use of a credit card, identity theft, second-degree larceny and criminal impersonation.

According to the warrant, Jablonski’s 80-year-old father went to police on Sept. 8 and said his son had been destroying his house, often spending his days under the influence of alcohol while living there, and had stolen from him. The man told police he had tried to use his credit card sometime in August and found that there was no more credit available.

Upon researching it further, the father found that $7,000 was charged to the card last fall and another $5,000 was charged this year, reaching the $12,000 limit. The man told police Jablonski is the only person who had lived with him during that time period.

Jablonski was arraigned Wednesday in Bristol Superior Court. There, he was ordered not to go back to his father’s home while the case is pending.

Jablonski, who is being held on $5,000 bond, is due back in court Oct. 12. He did not enter a plea Wednesday.
