A Halifax man has been charged with possessing stolen credit card data and breaching court orders.

Jonathan David DeYoung, 26, was arrested after financial crime investigators searched a residence in the 6200 block of Quinpool Road on Wednesday.

Police seized a computer, cellphone, documents containing credit card information and performance-enhancing drugs.

Last fall, DeYoung was charged with 108 counts of fraud, forgery and identity theft after police seized a number of counterfeit ID cards bearing other people’s names, and the equipment to produce them. According to court documents, DeYoung allegedly produced bogus ID cards containing the identity information of at least 11 people from Ontario.

At the time, DeYoung was living on Gladstone Street and operating a company called High Impact Promotions, which organized an event called the World’s Largest Pub Crawl.

In late December, DeYoung’s fraud case was transferred to the mental health court. He had been freed from custody earlier that month on a $30,000 recognizance and placed under house arrest at his parents’ home in Pictou County.
