CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - More charges have emerged against a Fairfield man relating to four separate incidents since Friday where motorists provided him rides in their vehicles or he attempted to get a ride.

Later Wednesday afternoon after 39-year-old Judah Hargrove's arraignment in Hamilton County Municipal Court, Cincinnati Police said they had charged him in connection with an attempted carjacking Friday at Chase and Kirby avenues in Northside.

The other incidents were:

*Saturday in the 11,000 block of Springfield Pike in Springdale.

*Saturday at Ohio 4 and Northland Boulevard in Springdale.

* Tuesday in the 600 block of Northland Boulevard in Forest Park.

In the alleged incident at Ohio 4 and Northland Boulevard, authorities said while searching 39-year-old Judah Hargrove's property they found two Best Buy credit cards in his wallet that were issued to a woman who reported the cards stolen.

The woman told police that a black male had asked her for a ride home at 1 a.m. Saturday while at the Pike Bar & Grill in Woodlawn. The suspect was given a ride and had asked to be dropped off in Springdale. The woman said she let the suspect out near a Walgreens stores on Ohio 4 at Northland Boulevard in Springdale.

The woman didn't know her Best Buy cards were missing.

The Springfield Pike and the two Northland Boulevard cases on Wednesday were sent to a Hamilton County grand jury for consideration.

Hargrove is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $260,000 bond. He is charged with one count each of robbery, abduction and kidnapping. He's also been charged with two counts of receiving stolen property.
