LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested two people after a number of thefts at a hotel in downtown Louisville. 

According to the arrest report, police received a report that a man had stolen a master key to the rooms at the Hampton Inn on Jefferson Street earlier this week. Early Friday morning, police received another report that the suspect had returned and was breaking into rooms again. When officers responded, they say they spotted a man matching the suspect's description -- 31-year-old Brandon Scott -- at Brook and Market. 

Police say Scott gave officers permission to search him, and that's when they found property that was stolen from the hotel on June 29. Police say Scott admitted he stole the master key and property from hotel rooms. 

According to police, Scott was with 29-year-old Elizabeth Boccieri when he was arrested. After searching Boccieri, police say they found a credit card that had been stolen from the hotel along with "a loaded needle with what appeared to be heroin." Police say she admitted to trying to use the stolen credit card. 

Scott and Boccieri were taken into custody around 2:30 a.m. Friday. 

Boccieri is charged with receiving stolen property, fraudulent use of a credit card, and possession of a controlled substance. 

Scott is charged with three counts of theft by unlawful taking and fraudulent use of a credit card.
