Two arrested for fraudulent credit cards
Special to the Times


BLYTHE, Calif. - Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents stationed in Blythe arrested two people and confiscated 147 fraudulent debit and pre-paid credit cards from the vehicle the two were traveling in on July 21.

The agents stopped a vehicle near Intake Boulevard and after getting permission from the driver and passenger the agents searched the vehicle. During the search, the agents found 147 fraudulent debit and pre-paid credit cards. The agents saw that driver's and passenger's names had been stamped over the original names that had been scratched off.

Agents turned the fraudulent cards over to Blythe Police Department who cited both individuals for felony possession of fraudulent credit cards and money laundering.

Both suspects were processed at the Blythe Border Patrol Station and placed in removal proceedings.
