LIMERICK PA – A 21-year-old Flushing NY man, and a 25-year-old woman whose address was not reported, face preliminary hearings Sept. 14 (2016; Friday) after their arrests last week by Limerick police on multiple counts of forgery, possessing and using counterfeit credit cards, theft by deception, receiving stolen property, tampering with records, and identity theft.
The male, Man Yang, and female, He Liu, were taken into custody last Wednesday (Aug. 24) after they visited the Swarovski store in the Philadelphia Premium Outlets, 18 W. Lightcap Rd. Police said an “alert store employee” identified them as being among a specific group of patrons suspected of allegedly “using fraudulent credit cards,” according to an item on the department’s Facebook page.
The pair were later located by department officers and mall security employees. A subsequent investigation discovered the two possessed a total of 13 counterfeit credit cards, and had allegedly used them to purchase more than $6,700 in merchandise.
Both faced preliminary arraignment in the Ridge Pike courtroom of Magisterial District Justice Walter F. Gadzicki Jr., and were transported to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Eagleville. Both were later released after posting bonded bail of $25,000 for Liu and $10,000 for Yang, according to court docket sheets.
Their hearings also are scheduled with Gadzicki.
