Police arrested Jason M. Brison, of the 6800 block of West 179th Street in Tinley Park, around 9:30 p.m. and charged him with one felony count of identity theft.
Charges stemmed from reports by a relative that her debit card was being used without her permission.

The woman went to the bank and was shown a photograph of the person using her card, the report said. She identified him to be Brison, who she said has a heroin problem and is living with his brother in an area Super 8 motel, according to the report. Police said there were 26 disputed transactions on the card totaling $3,837.92.
After being read his Miranda Rights, Brison told police he turned to heroin in May 2011 to combat his depression. The habit has now reached 12-15 bags of heroin a day, according to the report. He admitted to using his relative's debit card to withdraw money to feed his drug addiction, the report said.
