Four individuals now face charges of "Criminal Simulation" and "Criminal Conspiracy" in Murfreesboro after a recent traffic stop on Old Fort Parkway.
When officers pulled over the car in question in regards to suspicious activity occurring at Walgreens on Northfiled, their suspicions were confirmed. Police quickly located multiple gift cards and credit cards along with three card skimmers. Credit card skimmers secretly swipe credit and debit card information when bank customers slip their cards into the machines to pull out money. They can also be used at other locations outside the bank environment.
During the stop, four Florida residents were arrested. One even fled the scene on foot, but was caught a short distance away.
Police seized the credit card skimmers and the fraudulent gift cards and credit cards and placed handcuffs on 26-year old Castilla Olivia, 32-year old Lewin Mitchell, 27-year old Lazaro Castro and 32-year old Sandy Castellanos. The four will appear in a Rutherford County courtroom on October 12, 2015.
