MILWAUKEE (AP) - Federal prosecutors in Milwaukee say two Illinois men have been indicted on charges related to credit card theft and fraud.

The U.S. Attorney’s office announced indictments Tuesday against 39-year-old Raymond V. Scott of Joliet, Ill., and 42-year-old Tarquin C. Saunders of Hillside, Ill.

The prosecutor’s office says the two were involved in a conspiracy to steal credit cards and authorization codes, and use that information to make fake credit cards that could be used to buy goods in Wisconsin and elsewhere.

The two were also charged with aggravated identity theft. If convicted of all charges they face a maximum penalty of 17 years in federal prison and a $500,000 fine.

Online court records didn’t list defense attorneys for either man Wednesday.
