LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Secret Service and Clarksville Police are calling it the largest credit card fraud operation they've seen in our area.

Police say five suspects from New York were using the fake credit cards in the Louisville area.

They were arrested Wednesday after an employee at the Sam's Club in Clarksville, Ind. became suspicious and called police. Officers say they followed them and found 300 credit cards in their car.

Investigators say the suspects had 40 - 50 cards that were in their names, but were tied to someone else's account.

One suspect also had counterfeit bills in his possession.

Police say they've racked up $30,000 in charges just in this area.
