In one of these addresses, located in the Residencial El Tezal neighborhood, those now indicted were apprehended, who were identified by the Cyber Investigations Unit of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC), as possible responsible for the theft and cloning of bank cards, illegal wire transfers and hack of counts.
Mihai Ghiata also has a red card from Interpol for his probable participation in an international criminal group dedicated to fraud and counterfeiting of electronic means of payment in various European countries.
In the searched properties, the FGR secured computer equipment, various storage devices, cash, narcotics, magnetic stripe reader devices, cell phones and network servers, which will be analyzed by computer experts in search of further evidence.
In addition to linking them to the process, the control judge determined that both detainees would be subject to justified preventive detention, due to the possibility that they may try to evade the action of the Mexican justice, having economic means and relations abroad.
