Suspects in credit card theft ring face judge

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) – The members of an alleged theft ring faced a Clark County, Indiana judge Monday. Clarksville police arrested the five individuals involved on April 3 after they tried to use fraudulent credit cards. 

The five - Trevor A. Hinds, Tycia S. Peterson, Paul N. Roberson, Blandine S. Joseph, and Amanda G. Adam - are facing felony forgery and fraud charges.  

Police received information from Sam's Club that the suspects were attempting to use fraudulent credit cards at their Veterans Parkway store. The Sam's Club employee gave police a description of the suspects and the vehicle they were seen leaving in.  

Officers spotted the vehicle at the Red Lobster on Greentree Blvd, found the suspects and searched their vehicle. According to police, the group had 350 fake credit cards in their possession. Police also recovered counterfeit money, fraudulent gift cards and bogus credit cards with the suspects names printed on them.  

Clarksville Police said the suspects, who are from New York, South Carolina, and Georgia, traveled from New York to Louisville.  

Because of the severity of the case, the United States Secret Service stepped in to assist Clarksville police. The prosecuting attorney says there is a high probability that the case will be taken up by federal court.  

The judge set the $150, 000 cash only bonds for each of the five suspects.
