A credit card fraud investigation in the Tyler area involving hundreds of accounts has led to the indictment of four suspects over losses topping $100,000. Tyler police say investigators believe the fraud targeted individuals and businesses.

Law officers on Wednesday afternoon announced a federal grand jury indicted each suspect on eight counts, including access device fraud and conspiracy.

Investigators say one suspect worked at a restaurant and fraudulently obtained hundreds of credit card numbers through an access device.

An Aug. 18 search of a Malakoff residence led to the seizure of computers, counterfeit credit card making equipment and hundreds of bogus cards.

Police announced the arrest of three suspects. A fourth was sought.
