Two women arrested after using stolen credit cards at local stores in Perrysburg Township

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH (WTOL) - A big arrest happened in Perrysburg Township. Two women are in jail accused of buying thousands of dollars' worth of gift cards, using fraudulent credit cards.

"Those gift cards range from 100 dollars, to 50 dollars, and they usually attempt to get as many as they can on one credit card," said Lt. Gazarek.

Those credit cards don't have their own information, but are loaded with Someone else's information who usually isn't aware of it, until it's too late.

Swiping several cards was a huge red flag, that led police to Jayvonne Hughes and Ruby Petty.

Police say they had been going from store to store, swiping each one, until they got one to work.

"It's basically organized crime, everybody needs to be watching out for this, they need to pay attention to their account information, and make sure that there's not fraudulent activity taking place on it, and anybody with the world of credit cards, anybody and everybody is subject to this, possibly happening to them," said Gazarek.

Both Hughes and Petty are lodged in the Wood County Justice Center and are being held without bond.
