A convicted identity thief is being held without bond until his next probation violation hearing.
Kyle S. Puder, 31, of 145 High St., New London, stipulated Tuesday there was probable cause he violated the terms of his community control sanctions. His merits hearing in Huron County Common Pleas Court is Sept. 15.
"This is his second violation of probation," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said.
Puder had been kicked out of Teen Challenge, she said, was re-admitted and then kicked out again. Teen Challenge is a Christian-based program that lasts 12 to 14 months for people of all ages with life-controlling addictions.
In late March 2013, Puder pleaded guilty to identity theft for running up $10,000 in purchases on a credit card he got in his grandfather's name. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors agreed to dismiss one charge of theft from the elderly.
About two months later, Puder was ordered to pay $10,142 in restitution to Capital One as part of his three years of probation.
