Two people were caught with 60 stolen credit cards after trying to use one of them at an East Garden City restaurant, according to Nassau County Police.
Cops said Jacques Joseph, 30, of Elmont, and Shantelle Walker, 30, of Florida, were caught by restaurant staff trying to use a fraudulent credit card at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
Cops responded to the Old Country Road eatery at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday when a manager called 911 to report the use of a fraudulent card. Responding officers were told the two had just left in a white Mercedes and were driving on Ring Road.
When officers stopped the car, they saw the two hiding about 60 stolen credit cards under the floor mats, cops said. They were also found with a pair of apparently stolen sneakers, police reported.
The two were arrested at the scene without any incident or injury.Joseph was charged with 10 counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Walker was charged with 20 counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Both will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
