Stolen and Counterfeit Credit Cards WVPO

Three Arrested for Stolen and Counterfeit Credit Cards and ID’s at the Wrentham Village Outlets

On December 30th, 2013, around 1:00PM, the Wrentham Police responded to the Burberry store at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets.  Store employees were reporting three individuals inside the store attempting to make a purchase valued at more than $8000.00 with stolen or counterfeit credit cards and identifications.
Officer Robert O’Connell arrived to the scene first and witnessed the transaction taking place.  When he confronted two of the suspects, they fled from the store on foot to a rented 2013 Mercedes E350, parked nearby.  Officer Jon Coliflores and Sgt. James Barrett assisted Officer O’Connell in apprehending the three suspects before they were able to escape.
A subsequent investigation, including suspect interviews and several search warrants, revealed the three had spent thousands of dollars throughout Massachusetts, specifically Newbury Street in Boston, using stolen or counterfeit credit and debit cards and id’s.
The investigation is ongoing with the assistance of the United States Secret Service, but it appears these three suspects may be involved in similar crimes in other eastern states.
The three arrested are Justin Worthington, 24 years old from Oxon Hill, Maryland; Alexus Jackson, 20 years old from parts unknown and Christian Johnson, 23 years old from Landover, Maryland.

All three were held on $10,000.00 cash bail until court on the following day where they were arraigned.  Johnson is being held on a felony warrant for carjacking out of Prince George’s County, Maryland.
