A Pasco County man who deputies were searching for over the weekend following an auto theft and credit card fraud has turned himself in.

The sheriff’s office posted surveillance photos on Facebook showing a suspect who used a stolen credit card in three separate transactions in Land O’ Lakes and Wesley Chapel.

After seeing his picture on the news, deputies say 18-year-old Roman Delvecchio turned himself in at the Pasco County Jail.

According to an arrest report, Delvecchio admitted he stole a woman’s car from her driveway on Feb. 1. Deputies say he admitted the keys were in the cup holder and there was a purse in the car.

The arrest report says Delvecchio then used the victim’s credit cards at several different stores to buy items including flowers and a large teddy bear.

In the original Facebook post, deputies said it appeared he “may have been doing some felony shopping for Valentine’s Day.”

It’s the thought that counts… right?
