NCPD Investigators Bring Felony Charge Against New York Man in Credit Card Fraud Case

Police on Friday arrested a 29-year-old Bronx, N.Y. man by warrant in connection with an extensive fraud involving credit card use more than two years ago.

At about 8:35 p.m. on Sept. 25, 2014 (a Thursday), officers responded to Walgreens on a report of possible credit card fraud, according to police.

Fraudulent credit cards were being used to purchase gift cards, according to a police report.

Police determined through an investigation that the fraudulent credit cards had multiple victims, including people as far away as Colorado, the report said.

The New Canaan Police Investigative Section secured a warrant and charged the man with unlawful completion or reproduction of a credit card, a felony offense, illegal use of a credit card and conspiracy to commit both of those crimes.

On Friday, police traveled to the Monmouth County, New Jersey sheriff’s office to take custody on the warrant, the report said.

He was transported back to New Canaan and held on $75,000 bond. Police scheduled him to appear Monday in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
