Everett Chief of Police Steven A. Mazzie announced the arrest of a male subject charged with credit card fraud.

On Wednesday November 30, 2016, Patrol Officers Lauren Pagliuca and Chad Herrera and Sgt. Stephen Panzini responded to the Best Buy store for a male attempting to make purchases with a fake credit card.

On arrival, the officers were directed to an individual attempting to purchase a new I-Phone 7. The purchase was denied and the card was confiscated after determining it to be a phony credit card. The suspect, identified as Gerald Pierre, age 35 of Stoughton, Ma. was arrested without incident. He was charged with Credit Card Fraud Over $250, Possession of 13 Fraudulent Credit Cards, Attempted Larceny Over $250 and Uttering.

Chief Mazzie said: “During the holiday season we see an increase in cases of credit card fraud. It’s important that people protect their information as much as possible and they should use caution on where they use their cards, so they can protect their  information from being skimmed for illegal  purposes.”

Gerald Pierre was arraigned in Malden District Court on December 1, 2016.
