FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) -
Two men were arrested Monday after police said they tried to use bogus credit cards to buy diamond jewelry at the Cool Springs Galleria.
Jermon Trammell, 30, and Jai Barker, 27, both of Dayton, OH, are accused of trying to buy expensive jewelry, and one of the men allegedly tried to run away when officers approached.
From the suspects' possession and inside their rental car, police said they recovered 27 fraudulent credit cards, two counterfeit driver's licenses and merchandise valued at $70,000, including jewelry, designer handbags and an Apple computer.
Police said the items had been purchased at stores in Ohio, Nashville and Franklin.
Both men are charged with theft over $60,000 and are jailed on $1 million bond. Trammell was also charged with evading arrest.
