Man Arrested in Cody Had $13K Cash, Credit Card Writer & 23 Cards
The FBI says a man had 23 credit/debit cards, $13,000 in cash and a credit card writer in his vehicle after he was arrested last week.
A federal complaint says Allisson Mar Bebiano is facing three fraud-related charges.
The complaint says a security officer with Big Horn Federal Savings Bank contacted the Park County Sheriff's Office on Nov. 12 to report fraudulent activity. Police learned that Bebiano had withdrawn roughly $7,600 from ATMs at the bank's branches in Cody and Powell.
According to the complaint, the withdrawals took place from late October through early November.
On Nov. 25 Big Horn Federal Savings Bank contacted Park County authorities and notified them that Bebiano was across the street at Sunlight Federal Credit Union attempting to use the ATM.
Cody police stopped Bebiano and arrested him not long after.
The next day, police searched Bebiano's rental car and found 23 debit/credit cards, 30 ATM receipts, $13,000 in US currency, a passport, visa, Brazilian ID card, hotel keys for three hotels and a credit card reader/writer.
With the help of a bank employee, police compared the credit/debit cards seized from Bebiano. The complaint says there were 14 instances where the magnetic strip did not match the name and credit/debit card number on the front of the card.
None of the cards came back to Bebiano.
Other cards were traced back to foreign financial institutions including Spain, France, South Africa, Jamaica, Mexico, India, Hungary and Switzerland. Authorities learned Bebiano arrived in the U.S. on Oct. 5 with a tourist visa.
The case was turned over to the FBI.
