Three New York men are in the Centre County Correctional Facility after state police reported the discovery of fraudulent credit cards during a traffic stop Tuesday.
Baohuan Chen, 34, Sheng Hua Wu, 21, both of Brooklyn, and Hai Kun Li, 29, of Elmhurst, face a total of 184 counts each on four charges: identity theft, fraud, dealing in proceeds of illegal activities and possessing instruments of crime.
State police at Rockview stopped a minivan traveling westbound on Interstate 80 for speeding and making a lane change without using a turn signal, according to the criminal complaint. Police discovered 91 credit cards with the names of various people on them, according to court documents. A check of the cards revealed discrepancies between the card numbers and the banks they belong to, police said.
The men were arraigned Tuesday before District Judge Kelley Gillette-Walker, who set bail at $75,000 for each. Preliminary hearings are scheduled for April 15.
