A Canadian man pleaded guilty Friday to using fraudulent credit and gift cards to make $18,000 in purchases at stores in New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John E. Rogowski said surveillance videos from many of the stores identified Taylor Vaughn Oliver, 28, as the person using the cards. Rogowski said law enforcement officers recovered about $10,000 in goods purchased with the fraudulently obtained gift cards from a storage unit.

Oliver’s plea is the result of an investigation by Immigration & Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations.
