US Attorney: 15 years for pair found with credit card lab

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Federal prosecutors in Atlanta say a man and woman have been sentenced for creating a credit card lab.

U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates says Clayton County police found the lab containing card presses, computers, printers and stacks of blank or partially completed credit cards while responding to a home invasion call in December of 2011.

Prosecutors say the lab had more than 97,000 credit and debit card account numbers, plus cash, jewelry and gift cards worth over $500,000.

Authorities say 48-year-old Paul Black and 48-year-old Ednecdia Sutina Johnson pleaded guilty in March for possession of counterfeit cards, device-making equipment, false identifications and equipment to make documents. Their 15-year sentences are followed by three years of supervised release.
