Morrisville State College students Jamaal Adams and Andrew Spivey-Harris were arrested on Dec. 2,
according to the Oneida Daily Dispatch. Adams, 21,
and Spivey-Harris, 20, were charged with second-degree identity theft, a class E felony; second-degree possession of a forged instrument, a class D felony; and an unlawful possession of personal identification information.
Speer Wine and Liquor in Morrisville alerted New York State Police on Nov. 17, when they were made aware by merchant chargebacks that a counterfeit credit card was used in their store. Using surveillance footage from the store, University Police identified the suspects and bank officials confirmed that Adams and Spivey-Harris were using the account information of a New Jersey resident.
Both Adams and Spivey-Harris were arraigned in the Town of Hamilton court and placed in the Madison County Jail on $10,000 cash/$20,000 bond.
An ongoing investigation is being conducted by State Police, who said they suspect Adams and Spivey-Harris may have been using the account information of at least five other unidentified people.
