Two Arrested for Using Credit Card Information That Was (Maybe) Stolen from Target

Two people were arrested for spending tens of thousands of dollars with more than 90 stolen credit cards in an incident that may (or may not) have been related to the massive Target data breach. Authorities stopped Mary Carmen Garcia, 27, and Daniel Guardiola Dominguez, 28, of Monterrey, Mexico, as they tried to cross the border into the U.S. at McAllen, Texas with the cards in tow. According to McAllen Police Lt. Joel Morales, the U.S. Secret Service, ICE and banks affected by the breach linked the pair to the Target scandal, but one official told the Associated Press the arrest was unrelated, a complication befitting the already convoluted Target data breach saga. A federal official with knowledge of the case said there currently was no connection between the McAllen case and any ongoing investigation into the Target breach, but would not elaborate.
