Alaska State Troopers in Bethel are investigating credit card fraud in two separate cases. The first incident allegedly took place at the Tundra Center in Bethel. Troopers identified a suspect who allegedly used multiple credit cards to make about $1,800 dollars in illegal charges.
Troopers started the investigation on October 16th and say they are still looking into it.
In what Trooper spokesperson, Megan Peters, says is an unrelated case, a Bethel resident was identified for allegedly using several other people’s credit cards illegally.
The case started with a Tuntutuliak resident learning that their credit card had unauthorized charges. A Bethel resident was identified as a suspect and Troopers found that the suspect had debit and credit card information for other residents in the Y-K Delta region.
Troopers have contacted the card holders and say they are in the process of bringing charging to the suspect.
The suspects’ names have not been released because charges are pending.
