Synopsis:
The Cumru Township Police Department and the Shillington Borough Police Department are investigating incidents of credit card fraud that occurred at “Giant” store locations in Cumru and Muhlenberg Townships.
 
A Spring Township resident reported that his “Fulton Bank” credit card number had been used on Saturday, June 13th, 2015  at “Giant” Store #6273 located at 600 E. Lancaster Avenue, Cumru Township 
to purchase Gift Cards each in amounts of $100.00. The victim never lost possession of his credit card which lends credence to the theory that the suspects are using cloned cards.
