Three young men were arrested last week in Lake Havasu City for running a credit-card-skimming ring that has kept officers busy for months.
When officers in Lake Havasu first arrested two of the men, ages 19 and 24, it was for possession of marijuana. However, as they were searching the vehicle for additional drugs and paraphernalia, they found something much more interesting. Officers say that inside the vehicle were several items that are frequently used in credit card scams.
Based on information provided by the two men, a third suspect was arrested at a nearby hotel. In his room, officers found even more incriminating evidence, including a laptop computer, USB drives and other items required to pull their scam. In addition, more drug paraphernalia and blank credit cards and gift cards were found in the third suspect's room.
The men are believed to have operated their scam in Southern California and Phoenix before moving onto Lake Havasu City. If you are facing theft crime charges in Arizona, don't wait to speak to a member of the Knowles Law Firm to enlist the help of a
