YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Two Brooklyn men arrested after trying to pass a bogus credit card had 14 others, as well as an automated rear license plate cover, Ramsey police said.
Both fled the Walgreens on North Franklin Turnpike in a white BMW with New York license plates after the card was declined around 5 p.m. yesterday, Police Chief Bryan Gurney said.
Hearing an alert issued by his Ramsey colleagues, Mahwah Police Officer John Rodriguez stopped the BMW on northbound Route 17 near the Sheraton Crossroads.
Both men provided bogus Pennsylvania driver’s licenses, Gurney said.
After bringing them to Ramsey police headquarters, Rodriguez found 14 credit cards in the back of his vehicle, the chief said.
Aaron Findly, 21 (above, left), and Reynaldo Eloy, 22 (above, right), were charged with various offenses, including having bogus credit cards and driver’s licenses.
Findly was being held on $100,000 bail and Eloy $75,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
Meanwhile, detectives were trying to determine whether either or both were involved in recent local instances of credit card fraud.
