TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – An ongoing multi-state effort to capture suspected credit card skimmers lands a 19-year-old from Florida in the Lee County jail.
Kevin B. Hernandez was wanted in connection with multiple credit card fraud and fraudulent use of skimming device charges in Tupelo.
He was captured in Louisiana on an outstanding warrant from Tupelo. Extradition was waived and Hernandez was transported to Tupelo where a Lee County judge set his bond at $50,000.
At this time, he is charged with two counts of credit card fraud and three counts of fraudulent use of a skimming device.
Tupelo police say more counts may be added as the investigation continues.
“To make these types of arrests takes a team effort from multiple agencies at the local, state and federal level,” said Tupelo Police Chief Bart Aguirre.
