N.Y. man caught with 9 fake credit cards



ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Alpharetta police arrested a man Feb. 2 for nine counts of financial transaction card forgery and for obstruction of officers when he attempted to flee.

Police responded that afternoon to the Apple Store on North Point Parkway, where a man was allegedly running from loss prevention. Police caught the man, 25-year-old Abraham Vah from New York, once they arrived.

A loss prevention officer told police that they had recognized Vah as someone who had used fake credit cards in several other locations. When Vah attempted to buy two iPads at the North Point location and presented a fake credit card, the loss prevention officer called 911. It was at that point that Vah bolted.

While arresting Vah, police found him in possession of eight other credit cards that were determined to be fake.
