A man who used fake and prepaid credit cards to obtain property in Red Deer, Sylvan Lake and Innisfail, has been apprehended and charged.

Companies such as NAPA Auto Parts and Kal-Tire were identified as victims, according to a news release from Cpl. Leanne Molzahn of Red Deer City RCMP.

A roadside traffic stop was conducted by Red Deer RCMP on June 29 after they received information about a male who allegedly obtained property fraudulently. As a result, “approximately $20,000 worth of property obtained by crime and a quantity of methamphetamine” was located.

The following day a judicially authorized search warrant was executed on a vehicle and residence in Red Deer and police recovered an additional $30,000 in property obtained by the same suspect who used the alias Jaime Gonzales.

Josil Francisco Cabuhat, 32, of Red Deer, was charged with 16 Criminal Code charges including fraud over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and fraudulent use of a credit card. Two 25-year-old males are facing charges of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and possession of methamphetamine.

Red Deer RCMP are continuing to investigate.
