Credit Card Fraud

Cincinnati Police District Two recently made an arrest for the following offense.

The suspect(s) are scrambling store satellite signals by climbing the roof of the business and covering the receivers with aluminum foil.  The suspects then use stolen credit cards to purchase prepaid Visa cards and/or fuel.  The credit card system is offline during the transaction and the business is unaware until the suspect(s) are gone.  The credit card system remains down until the aluminum foil is removed.  We have several United Dairy Farmer stores that have been targeted.
