An 18-year-old Eaton man has been charged with 10 counts of fraud and possession of a stolen item after a shopping spree with an allegedly stolen credit card this week.

Australind police allege the man spent about $350 at shops in Eaton and Bunbury using the credit card.

The card was allegedly stolen from a residence in Eaton on Monday night and police arrested a man on Wednesday after executing a search warrant following CCTV footage at various shops.

The man claims to have found the credit card at the Eaton skatepark and did not steal it.

Police are still investigating the burglary.

The man is on bail and will appear in Bunbury Magistrates Court on June 8.

He has been put on a curfew by police to remain at an address in Eaton between 7pm and 7am daily.
