Police arrest 2 in connection with making $1,400 in fraudulent purchases at Granby businesses

Granby Police took two Denver men into custody early Wednesday morning in connection with $1,400 worth of goods that were bought with a found debit card.

At around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, a Granby resident notified police that they had misplaced their debit card at City Market in Granby and that fraudulent charges appeared on their bank account, according to the Granby Police Department.

The two arrested, whose names and ages have yet to be released by authorities, are believed to have found the debit card and purchased or attempted to purchase around $1,400 of goods, including gift cards and tobacco, from at least two Granby stores, Dollar General and the Granby Barn Store, according to police.

During the course of investigating the fraudulent charges, police identified a rental vehicle used in the crimes, which the Granby Police Department located at 1 a.m. Nov. 14. Police contacted the suspects and found them in possession of some of the purchased items and illegal narcotics.

One suspect also had a felony warrant out for his arrest.

Sgt. Amy Ryan-Williams emphasized that police are still investigating what the suspects purchased and where. 

Anyone with information regarding the case or believes that they may be a victim of fraud, theft or shoplifting should call the Granby Police Department at 970-887-3007.
