A pair of skimming suspects were caught Monday attempting to purchase large amounts of diesel fuel at gas stations throughout Florida using stolen and fraudulent credit cards.

The Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office tells WFLA 27-year-old Victor Fonseca and 42-year-old Yasniel Hernandez were arrested yesterday at a Circle K in Gibsonton. The diesel fuel was stored in tanks/bladders stored in the cargo areas of both vehicles.

Detectives tell us between the two of them they had 120 counterfeit credit cards!

Fonseca and Hernandez were each charged with Trafficking in Counterfeit Credit Cards and Fraudulently Obtaining Diesel Fuel/Unlawful Conveyance of Diesel Fuel. Further investigations will be conducted to identify the victims whose credit card information was obtained and encoded on cloned credit cards, and additional fraud and identity theft charges will follow.
