Lathrup Man Charges $20,000 on Stolen Credit Card at the Townsend Hotel
A Lathrup Village man is expected in court this week for a preliminary hearing on fraud charges stemming from a $20,000 bill he racked up at the Townsend Hotel with a stolen credit card last week.

Ryan Michael Greer, 27, is charged with single counts of credit card fraud and obtaining money under false pretenses for the Jan. 19 incident in downtown Birmingham. He remains at the Oakland County Jail on $100,000 bond.

Officers with the  Birmingham Police Department arrested Greer without incident in the Corner Bar at about 1:30 a.m., a police report said. He was reportedly with a group of friends and allegedly charged more than $20,000 with a card that didn't belong to him, according to the report.

It was unclear how who alerted police about the fraud, and other details were not immediately available.

Greer has had legal trouble before. Prior to his release in 2011, he served roughly 16 months of a maximum 18-month prison sentence for multiple drug-related convictions in 2010, records show.

Can you imagine what he allegedly purchased at the Townsend Hotel for $20,000? Tell us with a comment.
