A Corona man was arrested, accused of identity theft and credit card fraud after a search of his home turned up evidence.

Gabriel Luna, 46, was arrested on Thursday. Authorities seized a credit card encoding machine, blank magnetic cards and more than $30,000 in cash from his home on the 600 block of Avondale Drive.

This investigation started back in August, when a woman reported that someone had used her credit card information to buy large amounts of gas from several gas stations in Jurupa Valley and Norco.

Luna was charged with identity theft, making counterfeit credit cards and grand theft. He was booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside.

His bail information was not immediately released.
