4 arrested for phony credit cards from foreign countries
CALHOUN COUNTY, Mich. — Four people are behind bars after being busted with more than 150 stolen and cloned credit cards, according to Calhoun County Sheriff’s deputies.
Wednesday around 2:45 p.m., deputies were alerted that possible credit card fraud had just occurred outside the city of Marshall. The caller told authorities that the subject was no longer at their business but across the street at another business, traveling in a silver VW.
Deputies found four people from the Chicago area in the vehicle and discovered they were in possession of more than 150 stolen and cloned credit cards from foreign countries. In addition, deputies say they also had several thousand dollars in cash and more than 60 cartons of cigarettes.
All four were taken to Calhoun County jail on felony fraud charges. The investigation is being handled by the sheriff’s department and the Michigan State Police Fraud Investigation Unit.
