A Newport Beach property manager remained jailed Monday in connection with a string of credit-card thefts that took place at the Newport Beach Tennis Club and throughout Orange County over the past several months.
Masood Miskinyar, 39, of Newport Beach was arrested on suspicion of grand theft late Friday in the 6400 block of Pacific Coast Highway, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff's deputies suspected Miskinyar after witnesses ? who had seen a surveillance tape of him buying merchandise with the allegedly stolen credit cards ? spotted him getting into a new Toyota Tundra truck. Deputies took the man's taped image to local dealerships and from that were able to obtain Miskinyar's name and address to make the arrest, Amormino said.
