CONCORD — A jury found a Texas man guilty of credit card fraud in New Hampshire after his 2016 arrest.
Acting U.S Attorney General John J. Farley announced on Friday that a jury found Francisco Tomayo Noguera, 36, of Austin, Texas, guilty of conspiracy to commit credit and debit card fraud as well as aggravated identity theft in connection with a credit card fraud scheme.
Court documents show that Noguera traveled from Austin, Texas, to New Hampshire on Jan. 8, 2016, with Dairon Jimenez Roja and Elvis Barban Chavez.
The three stayed at a motel in Nashua from Jan. 9-12, 2016.
While in the area, they visited Sam’s Club stores in Manchester, Hudson, Seekonk, Massachusetts and Worcester Massachusetts.
They purchased gift cards usually around $200 with using stolen credit and debit card information.
One employee noticed the fraudulent activity and called Hudson police.
The three men were arrested by the Tyngsborough Police Department on Jan. 12, 2016, after an investigation by the Hudson Police Department.
The men had obtained the stolen information using a skimming device that had been placed in a gas pump in Londonderry.
Once the information was obtained, the men made clone cards that contained the debit and credit card information and used those clone cards to purchase the gift cards.
At the time of the arrest, the men had numerous cards and a skimming device in the vehicle.
The total estimated loss is approximately $29,000.
Roja and Chavez previously pleaded guilty and each were sentenced to 24 months in prison.
Noguera is scheduled to be sentenced in U.S. District Court in Concord on Oct. 3.
