LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A married couple in Las Cruces is accused of trying to use stolen credit cards they say were found on the side of the road.
Las Cruces police say 45-year-old Boonmai “Lee” Irvin and 32-year-old Ruby Valdez were arrested Tuesday.
The owner of the credit cards was alerted that someone was trying to order a pizza for home delivery and $124 worth of products at a smoke shop.
Police obtained consent to search the couple’s apartment and found the credit cards inside a freezer.
Valdez is jailed on suspicion of fraudulent receipt of a credit card while Irvin is accused of fraudulent transfer of a credit card.
The two are being held without bond at the Dona Ana County Detention Center.
It was unclear Wednesday if they have lawyers yet.
