Suspects Arrested in Credit Card Fraud
Gainesville - Gainesville Police officers arrested two suspects allegedly involved in fraudulent use and trafficking of credit cards.
25-year-old Edel Gomez allegedly tried to use a fraudulent credit card to buy a $400 gift card at a Walgreens Pharmacy early that morning.
When the cashier questioned the validity of the card, Gomez sped off in his BMW.
The cashier gave a description and police quickly caught up with Gomez and passenger, 31-year-old Yuneski Perdomo.
Inside the car, officers found 24 fraudulent credit cards bearing Gomez's name.
Police also found nearly $4,000 worth of various gift cards as well as over 30 cartons of cigarettes.
Due to the vehicle, which belongs to Perdomo being used in the alleged commission of these felonies, GPD has begun the forfeiture process to seize the vehicle.
Both Gomez and Perdomo were arrested.
Gomez was charged with Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card, Trafficking in Counterfeit Credit Cards and Scheme to Defraud.
Perdomo was charged with Accessory After the Fact.
This is a good reminder to constantly review your bank or credit card statements, and notify your financial institution at the first sign of any type of suspicious activity.
