SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

2 New York men face felony theft charges

Two New York residents are facing charges in connection with allegedly using credit card numbers that didn't belong to them. The pair allegedly purchased merchandise from CVS and Hannaford.

According the indictment handed down by the grand jury last week, the total value of the items was between $1,000 and $1,500. An indictment means the grand jury found enough evidence to send the men to trial, but doesn't mean the men are guilty of the charges placed against them.

Police documents claim the pair purchased $400 in gift cards on Jan. 13 at Hannaford. Their second attempt to purchase gift cards was declined. That transaction was for $800.

The Rochester Police Department and the U.S. Secret Service investigated this case. When police searched the vehicle the men were using, they found more than 100 gift cards. Some of the cards were store gift cards, while others were MasterCard, Visa and American Express cards.

The two men were indicted on felony theft by unauthorized taking and felony receiving stolen property. They both had felony theft by receiving charges dropped when the judge didn't find probable cause for that charge.

One of the men, who was already out on bail for another charge, was also charged with felony forgery. That charge was dropped to a misdemeanor. He is being held on a $100,000 corporate surety bail or $25,000 cash bail.

The other man was charged with a marijuana possession charge in addition to the two felony charges. He is being held on a $50,000 corporate surety bail or a $10,000 cash bail.

Anyone who has been charged with similar crimes needs to understand the severity of the penalties he or she is facing. Protecting a defendant's rights in court is important, and this is one of the jobs of a criminal defense attorney. Everyone who has been charged with a crime has a right to a fair, unbiased trial.
