Fair Lawn Police arrested two Bronx, N.Y. residents Friday after the two were allegedly caught with 10 phony credit cards, according to Sgt. Brian Metzler.

Divanie Casildo, 20, tried to use one of the credit cards to buy several gift cards at the River Road CVS and she handed four fraudulent cards in her name to police when they went to arrest her at about 9:26 p.m., according to Metzler. 

Detective Paul Donohue and Detective Sgt. Tim O’Shaughnessy also arrested a second person in the same car as Casildo. Darnell Green, 26, allegedly had six more bogus credit cards in Casildo's name.

Detective Jeff Walsh and the United States Secret Service assisted the investigation and were able to confirm that the fake credit cards were manufactured with valid numbers on the magnetic strips.

Police seized the credit cards, $638 in cash and two gift cards allegedly purchased with one of the fake credit cards in Bergenfield, according to Metzler.

Casildo was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and theft by deception. Green was charged with possession of altered credit cards, theft by deception and being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance. He was also arrested in a similar incident earlier this month in Bogota, according to Metzler. Green was sent to Bergen County Jail on $15,000 bail with a 10 percent option.
