LIVONIA, Mich. (WWJ) -- A Westland man has been arrested for allegedly using a stolen identity to purchase thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from a camera store in Livonia a week before Christmas.

Livonia police say Walker Allen-Cannon, 29, was arrested by the Livonia Police Department's Special Operations Unit on an eight-count felony warrant stemming from a recent fraud investigation.

Officials say on Dec. 17 Allen-Cannon went to Pro-Cam -- a local store on Plymouth Road near Farmington Road that sells photo and video gear -- and used a stolen identity to make a $6,135 purchase.

Investigators were able to use the camera store's state-of-the-art security cameras to capture Allen-Cannon's face as clear as day using the stolen identity. In the background, the video shows a sign on the door that says "smile, you're on 50 cameras!"

Police did not specify what Allen-Cannon bought at the store. It was unclear whether Allen-Cannon is facing charges for any other purchases involving the stolen identity.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 23 in the 3rd Circuit Court for an arraignment.
