PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say two people have been arrested for fraud after an Arizona sheriff's captain noticed an erroneous charge on his credit card that had been used to pay for someone else's traffic fine.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the investigation began last month after one of its captains noticed the charges.
Authorities say both suspects are accused of stealing the credit card information of victims through their place of employment, a medical billing firm which services a Scottsdale dermatology office.
Sheriff's detectives say the pair had been using the stolen credit card information to pay for personal expenses ranging from pizzas to tires and rims for their cars.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio says at least four victims have been identified, but authorities suspect there are more.
