A 21-year-old man confessed to several crimes Friday night after police found him with dozens of illegally purchased items.

Alexander Lugenbeel was arrested and taken to the El Paso County jail shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Friday. He is being held on suspicion of six felony counts.

According to Colorado Springs police, officers approached Lugenbeel, who was in a "suspicious vehicle" at the Harmony Bowl on North Academy Boulevard that had been reported stolen earlier in the day. Police found the items in Lugenbeel's possession and determined they had been bought using credit cards that were apparently stolen from multiple victims. Lugenbeel also was identified on video surveillance while making a purchase an O'Reilly Auto Parts store, police said.

According to court records, Lugenbeel was also arrested on suspicion of identity theft in September 2013. He pleaded not guilty and is due in court for a motions hearing on March 21.
