Credit Card Fraud Leads to Arrests in Red Bank
Red Bank Police arrested two New York women Wednesday.
Red Bank Police arrested two Brooklyn, NY women on allegations they attempted to purchase $11,000 worth of merchandise from a Broad Street retailer with a phony credit card Wednesday.
According to police, Shanierah Aaron, 21, and Urika Tucker, 25, tried to purchase goods using a credit card. When the card would not process, police said store personnel became suspicious and called police.
An investigation into the card revealed that the card was phony and that no credit account existed. One of the women, working in connection with the first, attempted to leave the scene in a vehicle but was stopped by police. Police later found the women to be in possession of numerous other fraudulent credit cards, according to a report.
Both women were arrested and charged with credit card theft and fraudulent use of a credit card and transported to Monmouth County Correction Institution in lieu of $40,000 cash bail.
The investigation is being conducted by Inv. Robert Campanella and Det. Wendy Samis.
