2 Fla. Men Accused Of Using Bogus Credit Cards 2-17-2011
Two South Florida men are in the Marshall County Jail, accused of using dozens of phony credit cards. Giraldo Veloz and Pedro Garcia face credit fraud charges. An officer stopped the two men after watching them leave the Lewisburg Walmart with a set of gift cards, according to Lewisburg Police Chief Chuck Loftis. When police searched the men's car, officers found more than 80 fake credit cards, about 60 gift cards, several cell phones and other items related to fraud. Loftis said he believes the men would use the gift cards to obtain cash and likely committed similar crimes throughout the southeast. Neither man, according to Loftis, has a connection to Middle Tennessee. The department is working with the U.S. Secret Service in the ongoing investigation. Federal charges could result in the case, said police.
