6-13-18 two california men arrested in credit card skimming ring in fdl

Two California men have been arrested in connection with a number of credit card frauds and skimming incidents in the City of Fond du Lac.   Police say a citizen called police Sunday about suspicious behavior at the ATM located at the Marine Credit Union on W. Rees Street.  Police officers located the suspicious vehicle in the area of the Credit Union and apprehended two suspects after brief foot pursuits.  Twenty six year old Preda Mihai-Alexandra and  35-year-old Adrian Capanu-Catalin, both Romanian immigrants from Anaheim, CA are being held in the Fond du lac County Jail on 128 counts of forgery.  Police recovered approximately 137 forged or cloned credit cards and approximately $7,500.00 in cash in the car.  Police detectives believe this incident is linked to the rash of fraudulent transactions that occurred over the Memorial Day weekend; however, the men arrested are not the same two suspects from the earlier incidents.  Fond du Lac Police detectives have been working closely with the US Secret Service along with the Oshkosh Police Department and believe that the two men are part of a nationwide Romanian organized crime ring targeting local areas by stealing credit & debit information by using skimming devices.
