ID Thieves Caught with Dozens of Credit Cards

Police may two arrests in the Houston area of suspects carrying dozens of stolen credit cards.

In Baytown, a shoplifting suspect was detained after she was caught outside a local Sears with thousands of dollars’ worth of power tools hidden in her clothing.  Investigators say Teresa Villanueva was also carrying a pile of other people’s drivers’ licenses and credit cards.

She reportedly confessed to taking out credit cards in her victims' names and making Texas drivers licenses using her own photo and each victim's name.

In an unrelated incident, a Montgomery County man was arrested at a Wal Mart in the Woodlands, allegedly carrying 30 stolen credit cards.  Deputies say 34-year old Rudolph Ronaldo Rogers and two other men were trying to use the cards to make purchases.  The other two escaped.

Investigators say that in addition to the stolen credit cards, they also found more than 50 credit card account numbers belonging to other people in Rogers’ possession.
