A no-knock warrant at a southeast Boise home early Thursday morning, yielded a machine to manufacture fake credit cards, along with dozens of guns, including military-grade assault rifles. This bust came weeks after one alleged member of the ring, 30-year-old Giraldo Nelson of Miramar, Florida, was arrested for using counterfeit cards in Boise. Police say he bought about $12,000 in gift cards at a number of retail stores. The credit card information used on the counterfeit cards was stolen during one of the recent corporate data breaches. Recent breaches have hit consumers who shop at Target, Albertsons, Home Depot and other stores, although police declined to specify which breach the account info in this case came from. Curt Crum, special services manager for the criminal investigations division, said credit card crimes have been on the uptick in the area.

"The trend is is for people who were involved in street crimes violent crime have turned to this kind of crime, but unfortunately they bring that same mentality with them as they come to our area," he said.
