Three arrested after trying to use multiple credit cards

Boca Raton, FL On Thursday, November 11, officers with the Boca Raton Police Services Department's Tactical Team were on a crime suppression surveillance detail at the Next Door Mobil Gas Station, 198 West Yamato Road, when they observed a silver Ford pull up to the gas pumps. As officers watched, a male exited the front passenger seat, walked up to the pump, and then swiped several credit cards. The suspect, later identified as Brandon McGhee, walked up to a second pump and repeated his actions. McGhee then walked to a trash can and threw several items into the trash.

One officer followed the vehicle, which pulled out of the parking lot and headed north on NW 2nd Avenue. The driver of the Ford, identified as Kristopher Exile, ran the red light at Yamato Road and the officer stopped the vehicle. A second officer went to the trash can and retrieved a college ID, driver's license, and two credit cards.

When the officers spoke with Exile, McGhee, and a third occupant of the Ford, Eddie Charles, they smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. The occupants told officers the owner of the vehicle told them to pay for gas using credit cards that were in the glove box. They also told officers they had smoked marijuana. When officers searched the vehicle they found a small amount of marijuana in the center console of the vehicle.

Officers arrested all three suspects. Brandon McGhee was charged with possession of marijuana, unauthorized possession of a credit card, fraudulent use of a credit card, and violation of probation (original charge was burglary to an unoccupied structure). Kristopher Exile was charged with possession of marijuana and violation of probation (original charge was burglary to an occupied conveyance/dwelling). Eddie Charles was charged with possession of marijuana.
