SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A northwest Iowa man has been convicted of making and using counterfeit credit cards.

Federal prosecutors say Yoirland Rojas, of Storm Lake, was found guilty on Thursday after a three-day trial in Sioux City. He was convicted of two counts of using a counterfeit access device; one count of possessing 15 or more counterfeit access devices; one count of money laundering; and two counts of aggravated identity theft.

Prosecutors say Rojas manufactured credit cards and used them to buy gift cards that he would later use to buy various items. At least two of the card numbers he used belonged to people who reported unauthorized use of their credit cards.
