MI: One of two suspects in Taco Bell credit card scheme pleads guilty

John Tunison reports:

Onil Rivas-Perez, a man police say took part in a scheme to digitally skim credit card numbers from Taco Bell customers, has pleaded guilty to identity theft.

Rivas-Perez, 36, of Byron Center, entered the plea Tuesday before Kent County Circuit Court Judge Dennis Lieber and will be sentenced Feb. 24.

Police said Rivas-Perez and alleged co-conspirator Roger Torres, 38, of Caledonia, got two Taco Bell employees to use a black box that can store numbers from swiped credit cards.


Detectives estimated 50-100 customers were affected by the fraud.
