BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

Police arrested a couple from California who officers said used fake credit cards to buy gift cards at Home Depot stores along the I-5 corridor in Oregon.

Beaverton police said that on Aug. 8 they learned that stores in Beaverton and Tigard had been targeted by a counterfeit credit card operation.

Using a description of the suspects' vehicle, police tracked the pair to Eugene, where officers found them parked in front of a Home Depot store.

Eugene police detained Justin Terrell Scott, 26, and Donnisha Leavelle Nears, 28, until Beaverton police arrived on scene and took them into custody.

Detectives said they recovered about 30 counterfeit credit cards, gift cards worth about $10,000, $1,350 in cash and other items.

Detectives said Scott and Nears are a couple and live in the Oakland, Calif. area. They allegedly entered Oregon Aug. 7 and began targeting Home Depot stores along I-5.

They both face charges of aggravated identity theft and first-degree theft.
