ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say two Albuquerque men are in custody for alleged identity theft and debit card fraud at casinos.

Police announced Friday that both 36-year-old Chris A. Garcia and 36-year-old James Rogers have been booked into jail.

Agents with the State Police’s Investigations Bureau in Albuquerque looked into a large amount of fraudulent debit card transactions that occurred at several casinos.

The investigation took several weeks to complete and revealed there were at least 35 victims whose debit card account information was fraudulently used.

State Police say about $58,000 in cash was fraudulently obtained at numerous casinos in Bernalillo, Sandoval and Cibola counties by the two suspects.

It was unclear Friday if either Garcia or Rogers have lawyers for their cases.
