Traffic stop nets 92 fraudulent credit cards

Posted: Updated:

Just after 7 p.m. Tuesday, a Chatham County sheriff's deputy made a stop on I-95. The driver, Jean Rene Metelus, had 92 fraudulent credit cards, tax documents, thousands of names and identifiers, computers and approximately $5,500 in cash in his possession.

Metelus was initially stopped for a traffic violation, but when Deputy Brown checked his driver's license, he realized that Metelus was driving on a suspended license. Brown is part of the Criminal Interdiction Unit with the Chatham County Sheriff's Office.

The Secret Service is now assisting with the investigation.
