WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – Three people were arrested last week on fraud charges in West Hartford.
Members of the West Hartford Police Department’s Community Support Unit (CSU) saw suspicious activity from people in a vehicle driving down South Main Street. Police said the vehicle with the wrong registration plates pulled into 143 South Main St. near TD Bank.
Officers found burglary tools, multiple washed checks and an improvised device used for illegal mail fishing from mailboxes in the vehicle. Stolen credit cards were also found in the car, and police said one of the occupants had a stolen credit card and altered money orders on him.
Police arrested 19-year-old Jeremiah Casey-Santos Moyer-Washington of Hartford, 26-year-old Kimani Donte Peters of the Bronx, and 28-year-old Jayvan D. Topping of the Bronx and charged them with various credit card fraud and forgery charges.
All three suspects were given $50,000 surety bonds.
