MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee man owes $62,888 and will spend 21 months in federal prison for multiple instances of credit card fraud, according to a news release from the Wisconsin Department of Justice. 

Law enforcement started investigating 51-year-old Gregory Bethea in April of 2014 after a Sam's Club and Walmart fraud investigator requested assistance. 

Officials said store surveillance camera footage helped authorities identify Bethea as the person using fraudulently obtained credit cards to purchase merchandise at retailers throughout Wisconsin and Michigan. 

Police said he purchased food, iPads, video gaming systems, clothing, computers and electronics.
