A Chicago man checked out of a Loop hotel Monday morning, and checked into police custody, after he was accused of using a fake credit card to pay for his stay.

Bryant Larkin, 25, was arrested Monday morning on charges of aggravated identity theft after he allegedly used a fake card with stolen information to pay for two separate nights at the Hyatt Regency hotel on East Wacker Drive on Jan. 13 and 19.

Larkin, of the 9700 block of South Yates Boulevard in Jeffrey Manor, was also charged with three counts of unlawful possession of a credit card after officers found several other fake or stolen cards in his possession.

Larkin, who prosecutors said is serving parole for two felonies, was brought to the Cook County Criminal Courthouse on Tuesday afternoon. He was released on a $20,000 I-bond with electronic home monitoring required.
