Fake credit cards means 3½ years for Houston man

🕐 1 min read

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — A Houston man has been sentenced to 3½ years in prison for using counterfeit credit cards and other devices to steal thousands of dollars.

U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi sentenced 33-year-old Deamioune Fansyre Caples last week and ordered him to pay restitution of $70,700 taken in the scheme.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley’s office said that between June 21, 2012, and Jan. 13, Caples used counterfeit credit cards and other access devices at Delta Downs, L’Auberge Du Lac, and Isle of Capri casinos to access money. He stole $118,684 using the counterfeit devices.

Authorities say Caples made the counterfeit access devices in Texas and traveled to Louisiana to use them.
