HUDSON — Hudson police have charged three New York men with engaging in credit card fraud at a Hudson business on Thursday night.
Justin Foe, 22, of New York City, was arraigned Friday on eight counts of felony identity fraud and one count of credit card fraud, a misdemeanor.
Taylon Hill, 19, of Westbury, N.Y., was charged and then arraigned Friday on one count of misdemeanor credit card fraud.
Deval Rhodes, 26, of New York City, faced one count of felony identity fraud.
This all stemmed from an investigation at Cumberland Farms, 189 Central St., after store staff called to report a fraud at 11:50 p.m. Thursday.
Foe and Hill had entered the store using a credit card to make small purchases. They then tried to buy $100 in cigarettes with the same card and the clerk asked for identification.
When their ID cards and the credit card did not match, the clerk cancelled the transaction and called police.
Hill and Foe quickly left the store in a 2017 silver Volkswagen Jetta bearing a Connecticut license plate, officials said.
Hudson police officers caught up with them and during the investigation they said they learned Rhodes was involved in the scam.
