Man gets jail, probation for using stolen credit card data
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — A Grand Island man has been given jail time and probation for using stolen credit card information to make dozens of purchases.
Hall County District Court records say 32-year-old Angel Martinez Coca pleaded no contest to five counts of forgery after prosecutors dropped dozens of other counts of forgery and criminal possession of financial transaction devices. He was sentenced Wednesday to a year in jail and five years of probation.
Police say the fraudulent credit card transactions occurred from February into July 2017. Investigators think the card information was taken from skimmers used on gasoline pumps and then programmed onto credit card blanks.
