Couple arrested for trafficking credit cards

TARPON SPRING, Fla. (AP) — A Port Richey couple accused of stealing nearly 8,000 credit card numbers face charges of trafficking credit cards.

Jail records show 23-year-old Gary Blair and 30-year-old Angel Toland were being held Thursday at the Pinellas County Jail on $5,000 bond each. It wasn’t immediately known if either have an attorney.

A sheriff’s office report says the pair tried selling undercover officers the credit card numbers and personal information of 200 people for $1,500. Investigators further discovered the couple had about 8,000 credit card numbers. The information was found on lead sheets from a telemarketing company.

Detectives say the suspects may have found the paperwork when they helped the company with an office move.

Once the investigation is complete, the sheets with information on them will be destroyed.
