RPD arrest suspect involved with stolen credit cards

Ruston Police officers interviewed Jamarlon Armstrong, 20, of Ruston, in regard to a vehicle burglary that occured on July 4 and ended up arresting Armstrong on two charges.

During the interview, Armstrong denied stealing anything from the vehicle or being in possession of any of the stolen property. However, as the interview continued, the officer determined that at some point Armstrong had been in possession of four debit/credit cards that had been stolen from the vehicle, as Armstrong had added $200 through his Cash App using one of the cards stolen.

Armstrong also sent another $200 to another Cash App user, though currently there is no evidence to suggest that the other user requested Armstrong send money.

Armstrong also attempted to add and send $100 from another stolen card, but that transaction was flagged as fraud and blocked.

Armstrong was charged with bank fraud and illegal transmission of monetary funds. Bail was set at $4,000.
