SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Two people have been arrested for card skimming in Smith County Tuesday morning.

Yoan Marquez Ramos, 28, of Haltom City, and Jorge Adrain Borroto, 23, of Mansfield, are both charged with unlawful interception use or disclosure of wire, oral or electronic communications, tampering or fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair. 

Investigators with the North Texas Financial Crimes Task Force including the United States Secret Service continue to investigate multiple suspects in Texas for unlawful interception use or disclosure of wire, oral or electronic communications (Gas Skimming Activity).   

On Monday, Feb.12, 2018 at approximately 10 a.m., an investigator with the Smith County Sheriff’s Department who is a member of the North Texas Financial Crimes Task Force located a card skimmer inside a gas pump upon inspection at a Bullard gas station located at 100 East Houston Street. A Detective from Tyler P.D. Task Force and an Agent from the United States Secret Service Task Force responded to assist.

During the investigation, a Tyler PD detective observed two known suspects from a prior investigation pull up to the station to retrieve the skimmer from the pump. The suspects, after realizing their skimmer had been discovered and removed, left in their vehicle towards Tyler with an investigator following.

According to police, as Tyler P.D., Smith County, and DPS converged on the suspect vehicle on Loop 49 the suspects started to throw out numerous items from their vehicle window in an attempt to destroy or get rid of evidence related to gas skimming activity.

Upon stopping the vehicle near Loop 49 and FM 2493 the suspects were identified as Ramos and Borroto who were already being investigated by the Task Force. This investigation had already established that this criminal organization had previously made 780 fraudulent transactions on at least 187 different credit cards in 29 cities and 3 different states.

Borotto and Ramos are both being held on immigration detainers by ICE.

Their bonds have been set at $1,500,000 a piece.

    Beyond their war of words, the row touched on several sensitive issues in Trump's White House, including a lack of racial diversity, security in the executive mansion and a culture that some there feel borders on paranoia.
