Vacancy on the top floor 

The dolt was an obvious phony, police said.

Cops said they went to a hotel in the 500 block of California Street on Saturday around 2 p.m. to check on a sketchy suspect who used his real name to check into a room, but stolen credit card numbers to pay.

The hotel turned him away the first time for trying to use a card number that didn’t match his real name. But he returned with another presumably stolen credit card number – and with a copy of that card owner’s passport, police said.

Suffice it to say, that didn’t fly either.

Responding cops ran the perp’s record and found that he was on active parole for fraud – surprise, surprise. He was promptly arrested and booked into a room where no credit card is needed, police said.
