Police Alert: Detectives Find 200 Credit Cards During Fraud Arrest

South Pasadena Police arrested an Arcadia man after a botched attempt to use a fraudulent credit card at Ralphs, authorities said.

The Ralph's clerk thought something didn't look quite right. 

So when the employee's gaze lingered over the man's driver's license and credit card, the customer became nervous, left both forms of identification and walked out.

South Pasadena Police on Monday followed the clues to the Arcadia room Feng Xian was renting, where they found more than 200 fraudulent credit cards, credit card manufacturing equipment including skimmers and embossers, cash, and a computer, according to Officer Richard Lee.

Xian, 21, had attempted to use one of those fake credit cards to purchase three gift cards from Ralphs back on Jan. 15, the bulletin states. 

Police arrested Xian on suspicion of fraud. 

If you have any information about this case, detectives ask that you call 626-403-7280.
