GRAND HAVEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) —  A gas station clerk helped police track down the suspect in a fraud case.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department said an Illinois man was using cloned credit cards to purchase prepaid credit cards.

Crimes of that nature were being committed at Wesco locations around the state, leading a clerk at a Grand Haven Township store to be suspicious when the suspect entered the store on Saturday.

The clerk reported the suspect to police and it led to the arrest of the 59-year-old Illinois man.

The suspect is facing several charges.
