Dayron Rendon, 32, entered Mexico illegally and was sought in New Jersey since 2009. U.S. marshals arrested him and he later plead guilty to one count of identity theft.
Rendon was accused of being a part of a credit card fraud ring that stole card information from diners at a Jersey City restaurant and a Newark restaurant. He was charged in 2009 with possession of a forgery device, identity theft, and conspiracy to commit identify theft. The fraud ring involved a waiter who used an electronic skimming device to steal the credit card information of at least 100 patrons.
The information obtained from the skimmer was used to create new credit cards and numerous purchases were then made using the new cards. A search warrant was executed at Rendons residence found cards with the stolen account information.
