ST. GEORGE, Utah (ABC4 News) — A Southern Utah couple faces numerous charges connected to mail theft and credit card fraud.

According to arrest records, Arturo Arellano and Amy Mcbride have a history of theft and fraud. During an investigation, officers approached Arellano and Mcbride’s vehicle as they sat in a business parking lot. Officers reported seeing financial cards on the floorboard at the back of the car.

A search warrant was obtained for the vehicle. Police say they recovered over 50 credit cards, something that appeared to be a financial card reader and a large amount of mail not addressed to either of the suspects.  

Police checked the names on the credit cards and found they were associated with theft and burglary reports made by the owners. 

Police report finding drug paraphernalia and a license plate linked to a stolen vehicle. 

The pair both face numerous felony charges for credit card fraud, theft and misdemeanor charges for mail theft.
