DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Four people have been indicted in a cloned credit card case.
Police were initially called to a store on Jan. 27 on Old Troy Pike for a complaint. During the investigation, officers found 73 cloned credit cards, receipts for gift cards and pre‐paid credit cards, according to a statement from Greg Flannagan, Public Information Officer for the prosecutor’s office.
Investigators were able to identify 13 of the victims whose cards were cloned.
All four of those arrested, 29-year-old Angel F. Rodriguez, Jose A. Renso, 45, Ambar J. Delacruz, 26, and Jason Villegas, 33, all from various areas of New York, were indicted on 86 felony counts relating to possessing cloned credit card charges.
“Cloned credit cards are created when someone obtains your credit card information, such as through the use of a gas pump ‘skimmer,’ and then copies that information onto a blank, counterfeit, credit card,” the statement read.
All of the defendants are in custody and are being held on a $250,000 bond.
