Police break up suspected credit card fraud ring in Fairfax County

Police break up suspected credit card fraud ring in Fairfax County (Fairfax County Police Department/ABC7)

ABC7 News uncovered details of a suspected theft ring that recovered 293 credit and debit cards.

Court records show it all started when Fairfax County Police pulled over the suspects for a registration violation.

Officers reported finding fake cards in the car, receipts for iPhones and jewelry, as well as fake IDs with the names "Jorge Soler" and "Luis Lopez".

Investigators discovered the suspects had been staying in Fairfax for weeks living at a Candlewood Suites near Interstate 66, where the police uncovered credit card skimmers and machines to alter credit cards.

The search warrant shows the police found 293 cards that where "altered or in the process of being altered."

One suspect had several charges dropped, but the documents do not explain why.

The suspects are due back in court in October.
