MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eagan police have arrested five Las Vegas after they allegedly used counterfeit credit cards with stolen numbers to buy thousands of dollars’ worth of gift cards.

The Star Tribune reports (https://strib.mn/1YANZ4P ) one of the men told police they came to Minnesota after getting an email offering them a job. According to a criminal complaint, a man gave them about 200 credit cards with their names on them and different stolen account numbers. They were told to buy gift cards and share the profit with an unnamed employer.

An Eagan Sam’s Club manager called police Monday after the men bought numerous gift cards there, moving from checkout line to checkout line to make the purchases. Police followed them out of the store and arrested them.
