The branch manager told responding officers that the suspect attempted to unlock the credit cards the day before also.
Police immediately took him into custody and upon a search of his person were able to retrieve what they allege to be fraudulent New York State identification cards.
The suspect asked police why he was being taken into custody, the responding officer explain it was for attempted credit card fraud.
