Canmore RCMP were alerted to fraudulent credit card activity at the Bell Mobility Store in Canmore on May 31.

An investigation determined that a male and female had attempted to use credit card numbers that did not belong to them. The suspect’s vehicle was located by RCMP members and the two suspects were arrested as a result of the traffic stop.

Shannon Nicole Kerr, 35-year-old, from Calgary was charged with fraud under $5,000 and identity theft and possession of fraudulent credit card data and possession of stolen property.

Aaron Phillipe Roberts, 37-year-old, from Edmonton was charged with fraud under $5,000, possession of fraudulent credit card data x 2, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, obstructing a police officer and failing to comply with a probation order twice and release conditions.

Sgt. Stan Andronyk said the arrests were made possible due to the vigilance of staff at a retail outlet.

Canmore RCMP encourage businesses to contact police immediately if they suspect fraudulent activity.
