Three Illinois residents were arrested in Hopkinsville Tuesday for allegedly using forged credit cards to buy large quantities of cigarettes at local convenience stores.
Hopkinsville Police say 27-year old David Logan of Chicago was captured on video surveillance at multiple stores buying cartons of cigarettes and other items with forged credit cards.
Logan was in a vehicle driven by 24-year old Raven Foster of Chicago that was also occupied by 29-year old Robert Wilson of Homewood, Illinois. The car was stopped on Fort Campbell Boulevard and searched.
Arrest citations say Foster and Wilson were recorded by an in-cruiser camera indicating where they had hidden the forged cards and police found 15 with Logan’s name in the seat belt slot of the their automobile and three for Wilson stashed under the driver’s seat of the cruiser he was held inside.
The men indicated another suspect was able to get away with their “load” of cigarettes.
Police say the suspects committed the thefts Tuesday at the Max Fuel Express on Lafayette Road, at a local Circle K and they are suspects in other thefts in the region.
Logan and Wilson are charged with felony theft by deception, multiple counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument and tampering with evidence and Foster with theft by deception.
