On 10/18/16, MPD SIU Officers and Investigation Division Detectives arrested 32 year-old Evette Guillen for violation of probation and manufacturing fraudulent credit cards. Evette was found to be in possession of a credit card stamp machine, bar code writer and computer software which were all used to manufacture the forged cards. She was also found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia. Evidence obtained from this case will no doubt solve several other cases of fraud/identity theft and lead to the arrest of additional suspects. Fraud and Identity theft are among the fastest growing crimes nationwide, but investigations such as this, often lead to the arrests of multiple suspects. The Madera Police Department would also urge those that accept credit cards for payment to carefully inspect the hologram portion of the card (if present) and the numeric digits to ensure that they have not been re-stamped or show signs of tampering.
