Two Prescott Men Arrested On Numerous Charges Of Credit Card Fraud

Two men have been arrested after they allegedly used a stolen credit card to go on a shopping spree in Prescott. Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in Chino Valley Thursday regarding a credit card fraud complaint. The woman says she apparently dropped her credit card at the WalMart on Gail Gardner Way in Prescott a few days earlier and had several unauthorized charges on the account. There were over 20 charges totaling several hundred dollars. Among the charges was for a room at Motel 6 in Prescott. When deputies arrived at the hotel they detained 43-year-old Terry Thompson and 23-year-old Nelson Robinson, both from Prescott. Robinson told detectives he knew Thompson had the card and he was there when he bought some of the items. Upon video review, Robinson then told detectives he made the purchases with the stolen card. At the end of the investigation, the two made 26 purchases on the card for more than $24-hundred dollars. The two are being held on 15 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, drug paraphernalia possession, identity theft and theft. Thompson is being held on five-thousand dollars bond while Robinson is being held without bond due to a probation hold.
