Police officials make big bust on credit card fraud

BLAKELY, GA (WALB) -

Investigators in Blakely are urging business owners to watch out for debit and credit card fraud.

Four people from the Atlanta area were accused of using a stolen card at Hibbett's Sports. The card's owner saw the charge and called the store.

Investigators say the four suspects used stolen credit cards in Florida as well.  

Three of the four suspects are convicted felons.

"We just recommend for stores to check IDs and don't allow the customer to enter a credit card number," said Early Co. Investigator Brent Alderman. "Make sure you have the card and are looking at the card and entering the number."

All suspects are in jail without bond and are due in court on February 29.
