All three suspects have been charged with credit card fraud and possession of altered credit cards. Two of the suspects have also been charged with simple possession of marijuana.

After being arrested and charged, the suspects were released from police custody. They all have pending court appearances in Essex County Superior Court in Newark, New Jersey.
