Seacoast warning goes out over gift card scam, theft
Deval Rhodes, 22, of 2168 Renfrew Ave. in Elmont, N.Y., was charged with forgery and possession of a marijuana.
Police continue to investigate and expect to charge the pair over the gift cards.
The caller told police that two men – one wearing a suit and the other wearing a Yankees hat and Nike sweat shirt – purchased $400 in gift cards before attempting to obtain another $800 in gift cards, but their credit card was declined, according to police.
Investigators believe Rhodes also allegedly signed a false name while using a credit card at CVS pharmacy.
Police continue to investigate and believe the case is connected to a credit card ring and have notified their counterparts around the area, according to Police Capt. Paul Toussaint.
“We’re not sure what we completely have – especially from last night,” Toussaint said, adding purchasing items with gift cards makes this “much harder to trace.”
On Thursday, police arrested of two men from New York State who allegedly had a van full of stolen goods, phony credit cards and fake driver’s licenses.
Anyone having further information about this matter or similar acts is encouraged to contact the Rochester Police Department at (603) 330-7128.
