A Scotia man was arrested for the second time in a month, again accused of opening credit cards in an acquaintance's name, according to state police.

Michael Swint, 30, was arrested Monday and charged with second-degree identity theft, a felony.

He made purchases with the cards at various retailers throughout the Capital Region totaling more than $500, state police said.

Swint was arrested in mid-October and accused of the same thing, but was alleged to have made purchases totaling more than $1,000, state police said at the time.

In the previous case, he was charged with second-degree identity theft and fourth-degree grand larceny, both felonies.

In the latest case, he was arraigned in Cohoes City Court and released. He will appear in court later this month.
