Calgary police are seeking the public’s help to find four people wanted in a credit card fraud operation.

Police say an investigation known as “Operation Crushed” was launched in May focused on fraudulent credit card spending in the city.

“Investigators in the Cyber Investigations Team (CIT) worked closely with other areas of the Service, retail stores, and with payment card providers to identify potential frauds, collect evidence and lay charges,” police said in a news release.

“To date, four files have been investigated and 19 charges have been laid against four individuals.”

Four people are now facing charges and are wanted on warrants.
