UPDATE: 2 nabbed at Texas border in credit card fraud case

McAllen, Texas (AP) -- Police in South Texas said account information stolen during the Target security breach is now being divided up and sold off regionally, as evidenced by the arrest of two Mexican citizens in connection to 96 fraudulent credit cards.

McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez said Monday that 27-year-old Mary Carmen Garcia and 28-year-old Daniel Guardiola Dominguez, both of Monterrey, Mexico, used cards containing the account information of South Texas residents. The chief said they were used to buy tens of thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise at national retailers in the area.

The two were arrested on Sunday morning trying to re-enter the U.S. at the border.

The Target security breach is believed to have involved 40 million credit and debit card accounts and the personal information of 70 million customers.
