Man sen­tenced for credit card fraud

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - Local -

REGINA (SNN) — A 47-year-old man will be spend­ing the next 12 months in jail fol­low­ing his con­vic­tion for pos­sess­ing a de­vice used for forg­ing or fal­si­fy­ing credit cards.

The RCMP says Ed­ward Joseph Moore was sen­tenced in Swift Cur­rent court ear­lier this week.

The of­fence dates back to Fe­bru­ary 2002, when po­lice con­ducted a search on a farm east of Gull Lake, lo­cat­ing a coun­ter­feit credit card op­er­a­tion.

The RCMP said about 4,000 blank and par­tially forged credit and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion cards were seized from the res­i­dence.

In ad­di­tion to the cards, RCMP lo­cated more than 200 mar­i­juana plants, grow­ing equip­ment, cash and a stolen van from B.C.
