TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

A card skimming suspect has been arrested in Tyler.

Yoslays Garcia Torres, 34, of Houston, was arrested for Fraudulent Use or Possession of Identifying Information, a State Jail Felony.

On Wednesday, officers responded to the Walmart Super Center, located on Troup Highway in response to a suspicious person purchasing numerous gift cards with cloned stolen credit card information.

Officers located Torres leaving his vehicle and detained him to investigate the suspicious activity that was reported.

 Officers located numerous gift cards that were determined to be purchased with stolen cloned credit card information in his possession.

 Some of the stolen credit card information was linked to victims in Tyler, leading investigators to believe that the suspect gained the stolen credit card information from pump skimming.

Torres is in the Smith County Jail. His bond is set at $1,000,000.

Tyler Police is urging everyone that may observe any individual who is purchasing numerous gift cards with several credit cards at a self-service check out to contact police immediately, and get a license plate off the vehicle if the suspect leaves before officers arrive.
