USF Football Player Charged with Credit Card Fraud After Allegedly Using Card of Another at IHOP


A walk-on football player for the University of South Florida stands accused of credit card fraud after allegedly attempting to use a card that was previously reported as being stolen.

Adrian Dejuan Palmore was arrested last Monday evening at an IHOP in Temple Terrace after allegedly presenting to the wait staff a credit card with another individual's name upon it. Police say the rightful owner of the card contacted the restaurant upon being notified by his bank of the use of his card.

According to police, the Lakewood High alumnus told them that his friend gave him the card. They say he subsequently informed them that he found the card on campus and decided to use it to satisfy his hunger.

The 21-year-old Palmore was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail just after nine o'clock that evening on one charge each of credit card fraud and petit theft. He was released almost exactly a day later after posting a $750 bond.
