Seven jailed for $500,000 meth-fueled crime wave and ORC in San Antonio - Six more arrests are expected  Police said they have recovered $500,000 worth of stolen property, including electronics, guns, drugs, a boat and mail that was used to open false accounts. Most of it was seized from a trailer park in the 16200 block of U.S. 281 North. They were waking up in the morning, and to support their drug habit they were burglarizing and stealing as much as they could, as often as they could,” San Antonio police Chief William McManus said. “We expect that this will put a big dent in the property crime numbers here in San Antonio and in the surrounding counties.” In addition to stealing property, including dozens of vehicles, members of the ring committed identity theft, forgeries and weapons violations, McManus said. Law enforcement officers from Bexar and Guadalupe Counties, as well as Converse, Selma, and the city's public works and code compliance departments assisted in the investigation. During that interview, police said Nelson admitted that he was with Costello when he stole a remote-controlled helicopter from a 7-11 store back in February, the affidavit stated. They were hitting stores and selling the merchandise to a pawn shop. (Source (Source

Chicago credit card fraud ring boss threatened rival 'would be cut into pieces': Feds  The alleged Chicago boss of an international credit card fraud racket has ties to organized crime in Bulgaria, kidnapped a man in Chicago and robbed him of $800,000, ordered a beating and warned a rival would be “cut into pieces,” feds say. And Gheorgui “Mitsubishi” Martov, 39, of Schiller Park, admitted as much when he was arrested last month, prosecutors allege in a recent court filing. Indicted alongside 16 co-defendants on March 26, Martov is charged with overseeing the U.S. wing of a massive ATM fraud scheme headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria. Prosecutors accused him last month of dishing out credit card numbers that were stolen in Europe to lower level gang members who then made hundreds of fraudulent ATM withdrawals in the Chicago area using phony duplicate cards. But allegations contained in court papers filed by the U.S. Attorney’s office Wednesday go far beyond mere financial fraud — painting him as a figure every bit as dangerous as Chicago’s Outfit.
