Man faces felonies in connection to credit card fraud

When a person is arrested for a particular crime, it can be unsettling to learn that police are investigating the possibility of adding more charges. If those charges are felonies and connect the detainee to known criminals, that person is wise to obtain legal counsel as quickly as possible. One man may have already contacted an attorney to represent him while New Hampshire police continue an investigation that they believe will connect him to federal crimes.

The 26-year-old man was arrested one recent Friday afternoon after officers say he was spotted driving his car after a woman who was fleeing on foot. Police arrested him for driving without a valid license, but they soon made another discovery. Investigators say that while searching further, they discovered cloned credit cards in the man's possession.

A cloned credit card uses a victim's credit information to create a replica card. The card can then be used as a real credit card to make purchases. Apparently, a ring of hackers responsible for millions of dollars worth of thefts with cloned credit cards has been operating across several states. Police suspect this man is affiliated with that group.

While the investigation continues, the man is being held on bail of $100,000 cash. New Hampshire law enforcement expects to uncover more charges and additional suspects. Meanwhile, the man is wise to be planning his defense with the help of a dedicated criminal defense attorney. Felonies carry serious consequences, and if this man is convicted, he may be facing a long prison term. An experienced attorney will work to defend the man's rights and bring about the best possible outcome for these circumstances.
