RCMP uncover ID fraud operation
From Black Press:
RCMP investigators believe they have busted a major identity fraud operation based in Cache Creek with ties to Kamloops.
On Oct. 23 Kamloops RCMP property-crime unit assisted Ashcroft RCMP with a search warrant for a Cache Creek residence that culminated in the arrest of a 22 year old Cache Creek man.
“An overwhelmingly large amount of personal data” is how RCMP are describing evidence seized from the residence.
Among the items recovered were dozens of stolen credit cards, stolen personal identification, forged credit cards, forged provincial driver’s licences, temporary operating permits, three laptop computers, two computer towers, an embossing machine, drugs and a .22 calibre rifle.
Also seized were hundreds of computer discs filled with thousands of pieces of credit-card information.
