Two DuPage County men are accused of going on a $600 shopping spree with stolen credit cards, police said Wednesday.

Michael Bicchinella, 20, of the 29W300 block of Lee Road in West Chicago, and Michael Nonnie, 24, of the 800 block of Dugout Trail in Carol Stream, each face felony identity theft charges.

Sheriff's officials said the men took credit cards from a wallet left inside a vehicle near West Chicago in July and then racked up more than $600 in charges.

Nonnie was arrested Tuesday morning, police said. Bicchinella, who faces an additional misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest, was taken into custody that afternoon with the assistance of West Chicago police.

Nonnie was being held on $30,000 bail Wednesday, while Bicchinella was being held on $20,000 bail. They would have to post $3,000 and $2,000, respectively, to be released.

Records show Nonnie received court supervision in May after pleading guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol. He also is scheduled to stand trial next month on misdemeanor charges stemming from a November incident in which police said he was "publicly intoxicated, yelling profanities and alarming patrons" at Bass Lake near Bartlett.
