(ANGOLA) - It was a Whopper of a bust for police on Wednesday afternoon. Police took five suspects from Chicago into custody in the parking lot of the Burger King restaurant on North Wayne Street in Angola in a case that authorities say involved drugs and alleged credit card fraud. Angola Police Detective Tim Crooks says 58-year-old Gregory Archer, 57-year-old Michael Parker, 23-year-old Malcolm Parker, 58-year-old Irving Fort and 31-year-old Darryl Murry Junior were all booked for Possession of Cocaine, Possesion of Marijuana, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Fraud on a Financial Institution which is a Class C felony.

Crooks says the five suspects allegedly used what appears to be numerous fraudulent credit cards with stolen numbers to get cash advances last Friday from several banks in Angola and Fremont. Police were called Wednesday at about 3:00pm when one of the suspects showed up at the Farmers State Bank branch on North Wayne Street with what were described as altered credit cards. The other four suspects were apprehended next door in the Burger King parking lot in a white S.U.V. which had Florida plates. It matched the description of a vehicle used in the fraud of credit cards last Friday. Police say officers detected a strong odor of narcotics while they were talking with four men in the vehicle. K-9 Jax was deployed and alerted to narcotics being inside. Police later found marijuana and cocaine in the vehicle.

Crooks says a large amount of cash is involved along with a significant amount of cocaine. Crooks says Archer has already spent time in a federal prison for credit card fraud. The U.S. Secret Service has been contacted and they are expected to be in Angola on Thursday to assist with the investigation.

Angola Police, the Steuben County Sheriffs Department, an Indiana Conservation Officer and the Indiana State Police were involved in the investigation.

One of five suspects from Chicago is arrested by police on Wednesday in a case involving drugs and credit card fraud.
