Dumpster diving suspects in airport hotel fraud ring headed to court

Tuesday, June 15, 2010 at 11:45pm

The man accused of using receipts found in hotel Dumpsters to operate a credit card fraud ring and other co-defendants in the case are set to appear in court Wednesday morning.

At the end of May, a Davidson County grand jury indicted William T. Frelix and 11 others on charges that they used other people’s identities and credit card numbers to pay for more than $100,000 in goods and services.

Authorities claim Frelix was the ringleader of a theft and credit card scam outfit in which he allegedly directed others to go fishing in hotel and motel Dumpsters for other people’s credit card information.

In one instance, one of the suspects allegedly offered a contractor “good deal” on building materials, and Frelix then took a list of supplies to a Home Depot and used stolen credit card information to buy the materials.

Also due in court Wednesday are: Jasper Cornelius Howard, Arlene Patrice Greene, Harry Van Booker, Glenn S. Rankhorn, Dwayne Christen Wallace, Jimmy F. Avery and Michael Dyvone Anderson.

Other suspects arrested later are expected to appear in court in the coming days.

Lock everyone of them away and we don't have to worry about anymore credit card fraud from any of them.
