SARASOTA -- Detectives have filed a total of 103 charges against the four men arrested a week ago for using counterfeit credit cards at the Mall at University Town Center, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.
Ricardy Multidor, Shnyder Rouzar, Vladimir Saint-Hilaire and Mickenson Desir were seen taking more than $25,000 in gift cards and merchandise on June 19 and 23, according to deputies. The four would buy merchandise from various stores at the Mall at UTC and take them out to a car.
Deputies found 23 credit cards embossed with the suspect's names after all four gave consent for a wallet search, and the cards' information did not match information in the magnetic strip, according to a report. Originally deputies thought the four had taken about $14,000 in merchandise and gift cards.
The men are now charged with a total of 103 counts of criminal use of personal identification for shopping trips, when they rang up more than $25,000 in purchases at stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, Banana Republic, Gap, Michael Kors, Sunglass Hut, Janie & Jack and Pacific Sunwear. The cards were encoded with stolen information of Capital One account holders.
