WYOMING, Mich. – Three people have been arrested in Wyoming on suspicions on being involved in credit card fraud, including possibly being involved in credit card skimming.

Juan Estrada Galvez, 28, Micheles Velazquez Gregori, 29, and Manuel Perez Cabrera, 36, were all arraigned on felony charges of Unlawful Possession of Fraudulent Financial Transaction Devices.  Wyoming Police say that they did not recover any “skimmers” in this arrest, but the investigation is continuing.

Police say all three had identification and were in vehicles that connected them to Texas and Florida.

The Metropolitan Fraud and Identity Theft Team is continuing to investigate cases of skimmers found on area gas station pumps.  The MFITT is comprised of Grand Rapids Police, the Kent County Sheriff, Kentwood Police and Wyoming Police.

Five people were arrested earlier this week in Grand Rapids and had a credit card skimmer in their possession.  All five of them had Florida connections.

Anyone with information should call their local police or Silent Observer.
