A Bradford man is expected in court this week to answer to a litany of credit card fraud, larceny and drug-related warrant charges after Haverhill Police took him into custody Tuesday.

At the time of his arrest, the 30-year-old faced 12 counts of credit card fraud and one charge of credit card larceny. Under Massachusetts state law, the offenses may be punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 or two-and-a-half years behind bars.

Pofit also must answer to drug possession and motor vehicle-related charges.
