LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A man is arrested and accused of gift card fraud involving Home Depot and local pawn shops in Louisville.

Police say 23-year-old Brad Boykin would sell Home Depot gift cards to local pawn shops.

Here's how investigators say it worked: Boykin would log serial numbers on the cards in a ledger, then use those numbers to re-order the same item ant finally return the item to receive another gift card which would then be sold to the pawn shop for cash.

Police say Boykin's scheme brought in more than $500 in cash.

Boykin is facing several charges including theft by deception.
