BATON ROUGE - Almost 200 counterfeit credit cards were recovered after a tip about people using the cards at a sporting goods store recently.

Deputies said they arrested four Cuban Nationals for having the cards and using them to buy merchandise and obtain gift cards. The group had purchased $3,500 worth of merchandise and $4,000 worth of gift cards.

Inside the store, deputies said the group had 23 counterfeit cards and had another 155 in their vehicle.

A counterfeit card looks legitimate; with real logos and stolen card numbers from people. Many times, cards are used only a few times before crooks stop using the cards.

The group in the recent case was booked into jail.
