Credit card fraud among list of charges

Shaquelle Caldwell, 22, of Corona, N.Y., was arrested on June 20 on charges of conspiracy to commit credit card fraud, two counts of identity theft, two counts of sixth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny and two counts of credit card fraud.

The arrest stems from an incident on March 16, when Caldwell attempted to make several purchases at the CVS at 964 Post Road., said police. Caldwell left the CVS without completing his transactions and drove away in a red Nissan Altima with New York license plates, according to the report.

After arriving on scene, officers conducted a traffic stop and determined that the operator of the vehicle matched the description the CVS employees had provided, police reported. A search of the car yielded numerous counterfeit credit cards. There were three people in the car at the time and all three were arrested for a variety of larceny and credit card fraud charges.

When Caldwell and other two men were arrested in March, a Tom Tom GPS unit and a 2-gigabyte Sandisk mirco SD camera memory card were seized, so officers applied for a warrant for a forensic examination card.

The SD card, which was a few years old and located in Caldwell's wallet, revealed that he was likely engaged in fraudulent credit cards, police said. There were photos of credit card numbers written on paper and on computer screens, police reported.

Caldwell was charged at Stamford Superior Court, where he was appearing for a continuation of the March 16 arrest.

He was held in lieu of $50,000 bond and is scheduled appeared in court on July 1.
