Men Caught With 48 Fake Credit Cards, Police Say
New York residents arrested in the area of Ratzer Road and Hamburg Turnpike last week.
Two New York men were charged with credit card theft after police said they had 48 fraudulent cards in their possession in a car in the CVS parking lot at the intersection of Ratzer Road and Hamburg Turnpike Wednesday night.
Adam Ferguson and Devon Jenkins, both 21, of the Bronx, N.Y., were each charged with fraudulent use of a credit card. Jenkins was also charged with providing false information.
According to an incident report, Officer Ryan Vallaro saw a car parked far behind the CVS. Police have been patrolling the area more due to “numerous drug arrests” they have made there recently, police said. The store has also been the target of shoplifters recently, the report states.
Jenkins initally told Vallero that his name was Kevin Williams. When asked for identification, Jenkins gave Vallaro his wallet, which had three credit cards with the name “James Lucas” on them, police said. His Pennsylvania driver’s license had the name “Daniel Gibson” on it, but Jenkins' picture, the report states.
Police found 45 other credit cards with the names “Daniel Gibson” and “James Lucas” on them in the vehicle, the report states. Ferguson was found at a nearby 7-Eleven
A CVS employee told police Ferguson purchased several gift cards from the store, Vallaro’s report states.
Police also found two iPod Touches in their original packaging in the vehicle, but no receipts, the report states.
Two secret service agents reported to police headquarters to interview Ferguson and Jenkins, police reported.
Bail was set at $25,000 with no 10 percent option for Ferguson and Jenkins.
Det. Dennis Farray and the Secret Service agents are investigating the case.
