(Update) NE: Police Track Credit Card Thefts

More on the rash of credit card and debit card fraud being reported in the Lincoln, Nebraska area that was reported earlier this week. KETV reports:

Lincoln police said someone who hacked into a national database may be responsible for helping identity thieves go on shopping sprees with credit card numbers.

Investigators said more than 100 accounts have been hacked in Lincoln alone.


Police said some of the victims of the credit card thefts live on the East Coast, Canada and England.
“Possibly, a nationwide database was accessed, allowing these numbers to get out,” said Lincoln police Officer Katie Flood.

Floods said investigators are looking to see if the breach came from a Lincoln business.
