3 men nabbed allegedly using fake credit cards


SPRINGFIELD, MASS. >> Three New York City men police say bought $10,000 worth of video game systems, cellphones and other items from a Springfield store using fake credit cards are headed to court.

They are scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges including credit card fraud following their arrest at about 5 p.m. Saturday.

The Republican reports that police were conducting surveillance for an unrelated investigation when they saw the suspects involved in what they felt was suspicious activity at a city Walmart.

Investigators say they bought cellphones, iTunes cards and X-Box and PlayStation systems and games. All the merchandise was recovered along with a number of allegedly fake and stolen credit cards.

The suspects were identified as Leonard McMillan, Charles Solomon, and Alvin Adams. It's not clear if they have lawyers.
