NASHUA - Police charged three people in connection to a credit card cloning scam where they found over 250 counterfeit credit/debit cards and over 20 various gift cards.

On Monday night, police responded to the Pheasant Lane Mall, of 310 Daniel Webster Hwy. after getting reports that a man and woman were involved in suspicious credit card activity.

It was reported that on two different occasions, the pair had entered a store in the mall and asked to purchase a gift card. It was later learned that the man had used two credit cards to pay for one gift card.

Security officers were then able to capture the woman on video surveillance and saw her go into another mall business where she purchased another gift card.

Police then stopped the vehicle that the woman was seen getting into and made contact with the driver, Jovon Williams, 24 of Oakland, Calif - the man seen in the store, and the woman passenger Brittany Allen, 28 of East Orange, NJ.

Police were then approached by another man involved from the mall who was identified as Queron Foreman, age 22 of Oakland, Calif. All three were then arrested.

After a search of their vehicle police found over 250 counterfeit credit/debit cards, over 20 various gift cards and various receipts originating from the state of North Carolina. An additional search warrant on two hotel rooms at the Residence Inn by Marriot in Tewksbury, Mass. where the suspects were staying led to the discovery of a laptop computer, card coder/reader, a box of blank cards and a large quantity of gift cards.
