A suspect in the July 3 robbery of a woman outside Glenbrook Square blazed a trail to himself for investigators when a store clerk asked to see his identification later that morning after he allegedly used one of the woman’s credit cards to buy men’s clothing. He provided his own state identification card, according to a probable-cause affidavit filed in Allen Superior Court.

The suspect also was recorded on security video shopping with the stolen card in other stores that morning, according to the same court documents.

Based on that affidavit, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Daniel L. Preston, 21, of the 2100 block of Eden Street, on charges of robbery, a Class B felony; forgery, a Class C felony; and receiving stolen property, a Class D felony.

Court documents allege that Preston, armed with a handgun, approached a woman as she got into her car outside the mall and demanded her money.

The victim identified Preston from a photo line-up as the armed man who robbed her, the court filing said.
