Hoard of counterfeit credit cards discovered in traffic stop

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

An interstate traffic stop led Lowndes County deputies to find more than 160 credit cards believed to be counterfeit, along with credit card skimming devices.

Francisco Yanset Enriquez, 35, and Joan Carlos Marrero-Vienes, 32, were arrested and charged with forgery and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.

According to a report, deputies pulled them over Thursday after they witnessed their Chevrolet Tahoe failing to maintain its lane.

Officials said Enriquez and Marrero-Vienes acted nervous during the stop, so they conducted a search and found more than 160 credit cards in their names.

"What we're doin' now is workin' with a multitude of banks," said Lowndes County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant Stryde Jones. "We've asked for help from the secret service, they're gonna be workin' with us on this case as well. Now, we begin the process of tryin' to contact and notify all the various banks and victims."

Deputies also found 11 different credit card skimming devices.
