Three Americans Held In Credit Card Fraud


THREE American men are in police custody after officers discovered a large amount of fraudulent credit cards, $10,000 in Bitcoins and a unknown amount of suspected cocaine in a home on Yamacraw Hill Road.

According to police, shortly after 8pm on Tuesday, officers from the Anti-Corruption and Financial Crime Branch presented a search warrant at a home on Yamacraw Hill Road, where the fake credit cards, cocaine and the cryptocurrency, were found.

The men who occupied the home were arrested. 

In other crime news, two Surinamese men were arrested at Lynden Pindling International Airport on Tuesday for transporting suspected drugs in their bodies.

Police said the seizure occurred shortly after 2pm on Tuesday when the suspects arrived on an international flight at LPIA. Drug Enforcement Unit officers suspected the men were drug mules. They were taken to hospital, given an X-ray, and several packages of cocaine were found inside them. The men are currently under heavy police guard at the hospital.

Additionally, DEU officers seized an AR-15 assault riffle, a .380 pistol and 32 rounds of ammunition.

Shortly after 6.30pm on Tuesday, DEU officers were patrolling Excellence Estates when they saw a man bending down nearby bushes. The man then saw the officers and fled the scene in a black vehicle.

Investigations are ongoing in all matters.

The officers saw the man "bending down" in nearby bushes but was able to flee in a black vehicle! So were the officers on foot patrol ? , because that would be the only way the bending man could get into a vehicle and flee !!!

They should auction the Bitcoin to the public! I would be game for this.

I have never laughed so much in my life. People, Bitcoin is a digital currency. It does not exist in physical form. There is no Bitcoin coin or note. It only exists on a digital ledger. I congratulate the police on finding something that does not exist in physical form. They should contact all the other police forces of the world to boast how they are the first to have ever found Bitcoin in a house.

Yeah most people are aware of this. If they have access to the private key they can still auction it off if they wanted too. I'm assuming they must have access to it no?

Just curious but how did these officers "find" bitcoin exactly?

The foreigners told them in broken English that they $10,000.00 in bitcoin as a joke.
