Five New Yorkers arrested in Clarksville for credit card
Federal indictments have been returned in what investigators
are calling a significant credit card scam. The five
suspects were arrested earlier in April, and now a federal grand jury has
decided to charge the group with fraud and forgery. Police
say five suspects from New York were using the fake credit
cards in the Louisville area. They were arrested after an
employee at the Sam's Club in Clarksville, Ind. became
suspicious and called police. Officers say they followed
them and found 300 credit cards in their car. Investigators
say the suspects had 40 - 50 cards that were in their names,
but were tied to someone else's account. One suspect also
had counterfeit bills in his possession. Police say they've
racked up $30,000 in charges just in this area.
