CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Two Mexican men each face up to five years in prison after pleading guilty in West Virginia to conspiring to commit credit card fraud.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 22-year-old Marco Carillio and 24-year-old Luis Vazquez, both of Sonora, Mexico, entered their pleas on Monday in federal court in Charleston.

Federal agents arrested the men on May 4 when they arrived at a Federal Express facility in Charleston to pick up a package containing 100 fraudulent credit cards.

A criminal complaint says Federal Express had intercepted the package on May 1 and turned it over to law enforcement.

Goodwin says Carillo and Vazquez admitted that they planned to buy electronic goods and gift cards with the cards.

Both men are scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 21.
