WESTERVILLE -- Police are combing through evidence after a major break in a credit card fraud case that led to six arrests.

The suspects are accused of recruiting restaurant and other business workers to skim customer credit cards.

Westerville police say they've been watching the credit card theft ring for months.

There could be victims all over central Ohio.

"They would pay them for skimming cards.  Normally it would be ten dollars a number," said Westerville Police Lt. Paul Scowden.

Police say the suspects would encode stolen credit card numbers onto the magnetic strips of prepaid gift cards.

 "There's definitely in the hundreds of thousands of fraud," said Lt. Scowden.

Police say if you see a problem with your bank statement you should contact your local law enforcement agency.
