HONOLULU (AP) — A grand jury has indicted five New York residents accused of using fake credit cards at high-end stores on Oahu.
The five have been charged with 31 counts of identity theft and other crimes. They have been identified as 22-year old Falyshia Pierre-Lys; 19-year-old Isatta Bassie; and 24-year-olds Shawnese Adams, Sean Khani and Tamel Vaughn. They are accused of using fake credit cards over four days in April 2012.
They are accused of racking up close to $325,500 in purchases from Honolulu retailers after checking into one of the Trump hotels in Waikiki.
Authorities say purchases were made at such high-end stores as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Gucci and Neiman Marcus.
