WALLINGFORD — Two men face charges after police said they used fraudulent credit cards at Walmart last week.
Deshawn Reid, 25, and Tariq Jamel Shaheed, 26, both of Brooklyn, New York, were charged March 1 with illegal use of a credit card, sixth-degree larceny, credit card theft, and receipt of money or good obtained by illegal use of a credit card.
On Thursday around noon police were called to Walmart, 844 N. Colony Road., for a report that Reid and Shaheed, were swiping multiple credit cards to pay in self-checkout, “an activity commonly associated with credit card fraud,” said police spokeswoman Lt. Cheryl Bradley.
Officers detained Reid and Shaheed, who were found in possession of 13 credit cards, Bradley said. Some of the cards did not have names or account numbers listed. Other cards had the same account number, but with different banks.
Reid’s bond was set at $10,000 bond and Shaheed’s was set at $5,000. Both men are due back in court on April 6.
