GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say three Florida residents have admitted to producing and using fake credit cards in crimes reported in Mississippi and elsewhere.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1hHF3rb) 35-year-old Yolanda M. Floyd, of Tampa, and 40-year-old Riverview residents Trevor Dashon McFarlane and Rahl Abdullah, pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

The charge has maximum penalties of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Their sentencing hearings are set for Dec. 10.

They are free on bonds set in federal court in Tampa before they were ordered to appear in federal court in Gulfport.

They were accused of using unauthorized credit cards for nearly a year, from December 2012 until the time of their arrests on state charges in Gautier on Nov. 20, 2013.
