Arrests Made After Local Convenience Stores Report Fraudulent Credit Card Scam
HERNANDO – Deputies responded to at least two area convenience stores today, after store clerks became suspicious of possible fraudulent credit card transactions.
The Sheriff’s Office has not released an official statement, but according to our sources, suspects in two, possibly three vehicles hit locations around Hernando County, attempting to use fraudulent cards.
Sources say the individuals would make small transactions and then request cash back from the clerk.
Deputies caught up with one suspect vehicle at the 7-Eleven located at Powell Road and US-41. One person was taken into custody at that location but his charges have not been released.
A second vehicle was stopped at the intersection of Spring Hill Drive and Ainsworth Ave, after an alleged similar incident occurred at the Circle K on Spring Hill Drive and Mariner Blvd. Deputies arrested 22-year-old Terrenika Jequishia Joyce but her charges are also unknown. A third suspect may have been arrested but that information cannot be confirmed at this time.
