Men accused of credit card fraud at casino

Associated Press - August 24, 2010 6:04 AM ET

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Biloxi police say security at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino called police after two men tried to obtain cash by using false identification and a fraudulent credit card.

Police investigator Steve Schlicht tells The Sun Herald that the men had gone to separate teller windows at the casino and used the same credit card number in attempts to get $1,000 and $500.

Police arrested 49-year-old Todd Alan Granstrom and 61-year-old Sherman Ray Wilson on charges of credit-card fraud.

The Harrison County jail docket shows both men refused to give an address when they were booked in.

Wilson was released on bail Sunday.

Granstrom is held with no bond on a counterfeiting charge from a different agency.

It was not immediately known whether the suspects have attorneys.
