4 Texas men arrested for fraud, conspiracy

WASHINGTON CITY – Rolando Torres-Quindelan 42, Alain Perez 22, David Ferrer-Aranda 30, and Nelson Carballosa-Bacallao 31, all from Texas, were arrested Tuesday by Washington City Police for using stolen credit card information obtained from New Jersey.

Investigators in New Jersey contacted the Washington City Police Department after finding out that credit card information stolen from a fraud case they were working, had been used at the Washington City Wal-Mart.

After working with the Wal-Mart Loss Prevention Office, police were able to identify the four men that were suspected in the incident.

Detectives then learned that the suspects were staying at a motel in St. George and served search warrants on two vehicles belonging to the men and the motel room where the men were staying.

During the search, detectives located controlled substances and paraphernalia, along with several instruments used in forging documents.

All four men were arrested and booked into the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility on two counts of unauthorized receipt of a financial card, a third-degree felony; two counts of forging a document, a third-degree felony; one count of conspiracy, a class-A misdemeanor; and theft under $500, a class-B misdemeanor.

Ferrer-Aranda and Carballosa-Bacallao face additional charges on possession of a controlled substance, a third-degree felony, and possession of paraphernalia, a class B-misdemeanor.

Bail stands at $25,000 for each of the four men who are still in custody at the time of this report.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    C’mon people. Get with the program! “THOU SHALT NOT STEAL”! It’s a really great rule of thumb even in these modern times.

    They need to be beaten. Now, I know that physically hitting them isnt acceptable these days…But I feel like it is fine in this case.

    Right Makkie, I know the ethnicity of pedophiles are white every time before I see the photos, too.

      So then, Monica, you agree with Makkie that we should express ourselves by racially profiling every chance we get. How very Machiavellian of you, or is that gender profiling, as well.
