New York Duo Arrested In Florida On Theft Charges

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Two New Yorkers are being held in a Florida jail after officials said they flew to the Sunshine State solely to commit widespread fraud.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office said 22-year-old Graisy Pichardo and 26-year-old Myles Nicholas were arrested Wednesday and are being held on $15,000 bail each.

Deputies said they tried to buy gift cards at two Walmarts on Tuesday but left when asked for identification. Store officials contacted law enforcement.

Deputies say they found the pair inside a rental car outside a store. They said the duo had used cloned credit cards to buy $3,000 in gift cards at several stores. They say a machine to clone credit cards was found.

It couldn’t be determined if they have an attorney. They are charged with theft and other felonies.
