MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two men have been arrested after police uncovered an alleged counterfeit credit card making operation in Southern California.

The Daily Breeze newspaper reported Wednesday (https://lat.ms/2a2K50z ) that the investigation began in Manhattan Beach after it was discovered that phony cards were used to buy merchandise in local stores.

The probe led police to cities across Los Angeles, Riverside and Orange counties.

The newspaper says a search warrant was served last weekend at an address in Corona, where the operation was uncovered. Police recovered 150 counterfeit credit cards, numerous fake ID cards, as well as equipment used to print names and raised numbers on cards. Merchandise purchased with the phony cards was also found.
