Two New York men were arrested Friday in Hooksett, N.H. for allegedly using fraudulent credit cards to buy more than $5,000 worth of cigarettes, New Hampshire State Police said.
Alberto Rodriguez, 24, and Davon Susana, 20, were arrested at a rest area on Interstate 93 southbound at 12:36 p.m., State police said in a press release.
The two spent months using the fraudulent and stolen card to purchase cartons of cigarettes that police believed they planned to resell in New York, the release stated.
Susana attempted to give police several false names, police said. Once they learned his real identity, officers discovered that he was wanted in New York for robbery.
He was charged with being a fugitive from justice, false reports to law enforcement and fraudulent use of a credit card, the statement said.
Rodriguez was charged with operating after suspension, fraudulent use of a credit card and identity fraud, police said.
The two are scheduled to be arraigned at Merrimack County Superior Court on Monday, police said.Adam Sennott can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
