What: Detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit have arrested a Port Richey couple after the two sold the credit card numbers and personal information of 200 people to investigators in an undercover operation.

In the course of the investigation, detectives discovered the couple to be in possession of approximately 8000 credit card numbers.

Where: The suspects were arrested in the parking lot of a business located at US 19 N and Tarpon Avenue in Tarpon Spring.

When: Detectives arrested the two suspects on Wednesday, October 26, 2011.

How/Why:
Detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit received information in mid-October, 2011 that the suspects identified as 30-year-old Angel Dawn Toland and her boyfriend 23-year-old Gary D. Blair were in possession of, and intended to sell credit card numbers.

Detectives began their investigation, and on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 conducted an undercover operation in which they purchased from the couple – the credit card numbers and personal information of 200 people for the amount $1500.

Through their investigation, detectives further discovered the couple had approximately 8000 credit card numbers in their possession. The credit card numbers along with the card’s expiration date and security code were found on lead sheets from a telemarketing company. Detectives say the suspects may have come into contact with the telemarketing company, when they provided them assistance for an office move.

Detectives say the sheets contained all the details needed to compromise someone’s identity – to include names, addresses, and dates of birth. Detectives have verified that the credit card numbers were at one time legitimate accounts, and that some are currently still active. At this time it appears none of the accounts have been compromised.

Detectives have recovered the information sheets. At the conclusion of the investigation, the sheets will be set for destruction.

Toland and Blair were arrested for trafficking in credit cards and transported to the Pinellas County Jail.

The investigation continues.
