LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted six people who authorities say spent over $74,000 at several Nebraska retailers after stealing account numbers from debit and credit card holders around the world.

An indictment unsealed Monday charges six Nebraska natives with conspiracy to use stolen credit card numbers and other counts. The indictment accuses the six of using cards encoded with account numbers belonging to people throughout the U.S., Japan and Spain to make $74,772 in purchases from March 2014 until September.

The six people charged are 42-year-old Angel Oramas, of Columbus; 48-year-old Vilma Fernandez, of Wilber; 29-year-old Yusnel Abreu Lamas, of Grand Island; and 38-year-old Anyier Paladon, 44-year-old Jorge Tsuhako and 34-year-old Elain Cartaya, all of Crete.

All six were arrested Monday and entered not guilty pleas at initial hearings.
