2 nabbed at Texas border in credit card fraud case

McALLEN, Texas (AP) -- Police say two people trying to enter the U.S. from Mexico have been arrested in South Texas on fraud charges that could be related to the theft of personal data from Target retail stores.

McAllen police Chief Victor Rodriguez scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon.

Officials say 27-year-old Mary Carmen Garcia and 28-year-old Daniel Guardiola Dominguez, both of Monterrey, Mexico, were arrested Sunday at the Anzalduas International Bridge. Both were trying to re-enter the U.S.

Rodriguez told The Monitor newspaper that police had already obtained warrants for their arrests so they were taken into custody when they crossed the bridge. Officials say both suspects were carrying fraudulent credit cards when arrested and police believe personal information stolen from the Target security breach was used for the cards.
