FPD Arrests Three Suspects In Multi-State Crime Spree
Fishers, (Indiana) – Fishers Police Chief George Kehl announces the arrest of three suspects believed to be involved in a multi-state crime spree.
Yesterday, while patrolling the 8300 block of 96th Street, a Fishers police officer observed a white Chevrolet Malibu, with Georgia registration, driving around the Wal-Mart parking lot. The officer observed a male and female exit the car and walk into the Wal-Mart. A third passenger remained in the car hunched down in the backseat. A short time later the officer observed the male exit the store and several minutes later the female followed. The officer followed the Malibu as it exited the Wal-Mart parking lot and traveled northbound on Interstate 69. The officer conducted a traffic stop after observing the driver commit multiple traffic infractions and nearly causing a crash with another motorist.
During the traffic stop the officer discovered these individuals were in possession of multiple cloned credit cards and a card skimming device. Officers also met with Wal-Mart Loss Prevention and learned the suspects had committed ten fraudulent transactions using cloned credit cards. All three suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Hamilton County Jail without incident.
This continues to be an active investigation and additional charges may be filed in the future. Anyone with information regarding these suspects is encouraged to contact Officer Greg Weesner at 317-595-3300.
