SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Four Northern California men who went on shopping sprees at a Sparks sporting goods store have been arrested on suspicion of credit card fraud.

Sparks police say they received calls from several Californians on Sunday complaining of fraudulent purchases on their credit cards at Scheels at the Legends mall.

The Reno Gazette Journal (http://tinyurl.com/lvdtz57) reports the store determined that two days earlier the same group of people entered Scheels, bought items with credit cards and left in similar vehicles.

When the group returned again Sunday, police were waiting for them and found 30 altered or fraudulent cards.


Charges including burglary and forgery have been filed against 25-year-old John Nguyen of Sacramento, 32-year-old Thomas Vath of Lathrop, 27-year-old Bin Huu Pham of Elk Grove and 30-year-old Hoang Thanh Nguyen of Stockton.
