WALNUT CREEK (KRON) — Two Castro Valley residents where arrested during a probation search on Saturday after officers discovered equipment used to make fake credit cards, police said.

Around 8:30 a.m., police conducted a probation search at Motel 6, located on N. Main St., about a mile from the Walnut Creek Police Department.

According to police, the man and woman were found in possession of blank and altered credit cards, embossing and encoding machines, laptop computers and paperwork containing the personal identification information of numerous potential victims.
