Three Brooklyn residents apparently thought Batavia would be a good place to try and pass some fraudulent credit cards, but alert employees at local stores tripped them up and all three are now in custody.

The Sheriff's Office was first alerted to suspicious activity by an employee of Rite-Aid, who reported two men were attempting to buy items using several different credit cards.

A short time later, a loss prevention officer at Walmart reported the men were at the store by the Subway concession. 

Deputies responded and spoke with the subjects and a third companion was located.

Arrested were: 

  • Monta H. Little, 20, of Bushwick Street, Brooklyn, charged with 28 counts of criminal possessioni of a forged instrument 2nd. Little allegedly held 27 fradulent credit and debit cards and one fradulent New Jerese driver's license.

  • Nelson Grant Jr., 26, of Seigel Street, Brooklyn, charged with five counts of possession of a forged instrument, 2nd, for allegedly possessing five fradulent credit and debit cards.
