Identity Theft Ring Busted

Fayetteville Police Detectives have arrested eight individuals in connection with a local identity theft case that has resulted in 85 charges to date.

 

Detective Chris Cody of the Property Crimes Unit began his initial investigation into a single case of credit card theft in September of 2008. The investigation led to 23-year old Michael Patrick Miller, who at the time, was employed by a local hotel chain. Miller would provide credit card numbers of patrons staying at the hotel to 29-year old Shadarryl Jayuan Turner. Turner, who has a prior fraud record, would then conspire with individuals employed at various local retail stores, providing them with the credit card numbers to purchase gift cards and merchandise. In exchange for allowing Turner to utilize the stolen credit card numbers, Turner would provide them with gift cards as a form of payment.  All individuals listed above have been terminated from their employers as a result of this case. 

 

The following individuals have been charged as follows:
