Two Florida men arrested for using stolen credit card to pay for Primanti Bros. visit

GROVE CITY, Pa. -

Pennsylvania State Police say two Florida men were arrested in Mercer county over the weekend, for using stolen credit cards at several area retailers and restaurants. 

According to police, Gean Carlos Del Valle Barquin, 37-years-old, of Doral, Florida, and Jeisy Camejo Escandell, 28-years-old, of Miami Beach, Florida, were arrested Saturday night at Rachel's Roadhouse, in Volant, Pa. 

Police say a man from Bedford, Pa. contacted the state police saying that there were fraudulent charges made to his credit card account. The man told police that just moments before he called them, someone had accessed his credit card at Primanti Bros. in Springfield Township. 

When state Troopers contacted the restaurant the employees provided them with surveillance photos, of Barquin and Escandell. 

Police located the two suspects at Rachel's Roadhouse, a short distance away. 

Upon a search of the suspects and their hotel room, police found over 115 other fraudulent credit cards, which police say they had used to pay for the hotel room, a rental car, various goods and gift cards from the Grove City outlet Mall, as well as restaurant visits, and more. 

State Troopers say Escandell and Barquin racked up over $26,000 in fraudulent charges to the cards. They have been charged with device fraud, identity theft, and operating a corrupt organization.  

The two await their first court date in the Mercer County Jail.
