Largest lab in area for manufacturing stolen credit cards busted in Memphis after surveillance video at Kroger ID'ed couple  A man and woman were arrested Wednesday after deputies discovered, what they call, one of the largest labs for the manufacture of stolen credit cards in the area. 30-year-old Crystal Thompson and 29-year-old Harry Hudson are charged with Identity Theft and Fraudulent Use of Credit and Debit Cards. While investigating two separate cases of credit and debit card fraud, investigators with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office received video evidence that showed Thompson and Hudson using stolen cards to get cash and buy merchandise.
