GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say two Gallup residents have been accused of illegally using the credit card of a California woman who died in a New Mexico car crash.

New Mexico State Police say 40-year-old Bryan Burrola and 36-year-old Amy Lucero were arrested Wednesday in Gallup.

They both are being held on suspicion of credit card fraud and possession of a stolen credit card.

Raina Lopez died in an Aug. 29 crash on Interstate 40 and her vehicle was removed from the scene by a Gallup tow company.

Lopez’s family told police last month that someone had recently used her credit card to buy more than $3,000 worth of items.

Police say Burrola was an employee of the tow company and lives with Lucero, who allegedly possessed one of Lopez’s stolen credit cards.
