Two Collier County residents are accused of trying to use counterfeit credit cards in Charlotte County.
Alexander Toledo, 42 and Gretcheen Reyes-Rojas, 29, both of 2086 46th Street, were arrested Tuesday by Charlotte County deputies after trying to use the credit cards at Walmart in Englewood.
Detectives found Toledo and Reyes-Rojas in possession of several credit cards with their names embossed on them; however, numbers used on the front of the card did not match numbers on the back or on the magnetic strip when run through a card reader. According to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, the two made three purchases made in the store; two were for $100 gift cards, and other items. Also, two counterfeit cards were declined when they tried to buy several items.
Detectives found more counterfeit credit cards in a car owned by Reyes-Rojas.
Toledo told a deputy that they bought 10 cards for $5 apiece from a person in Miami.
The two were each charged with trafficking in counterfeit credit cards, forgery of credit cards, and fraudulent use of a credit card.
Both posted $10,000 bond and were released today.
