PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say they have arrested six Seattle-area suspects in what they are calling a theft ring that victimized 110 people across seven states.

The Oregonian reports (https://goo.gl/kmr6Wt ) five adults and a 15-year-old girl were arrested Nov. 29. They all face several charges, including organized retail left and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Police say the suspects were arrested in West Linn after reports that six people were using stolen credit cards to purchase more than $11,000 in Apple gift cards. Authorities stopped an SUV carrying the suspects along Interstate 205.

The suspects are accused of buying more than $26,000 in gift cards in the stolen credit card scheme.

The credit card numbers were linked to victims in Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, New Jersey, Texas, Colorado and Wisconsin.
