UPDATE 10/12/12:
The Marion County Sheriff's Department released the names of those arrested in an ongoing credit card fraud investigation.
 
They said Jesse Fetty, 20, and Christopher Stevens, 24, stole up to $2,000 worth of items from cars around the area. Both the men are from Fairmont. Investigators also believe they used about $3,000 from stolen credit cards. They said the thefts happened during the past few weeks.
 
Police recovered a stolen handgun during the arrests.
 
A juvenile has also been arrested in connection to this case, but there are no charges at this time. Deputies said one more arrest is pending.
 
ORIGINAL STORY 10/11/12:
 
At least two men were arrested Thursday afternoon for their role in what police are calling an ongoing investigation into credit card fraud and repeated car break-ins in the Fairmont area.
 
The first arrest happened during a traffic stop on Monroe St. around 12:30 p.m., and the second arrest happened at the Unity Terrace Apartments shortly after.
 
The Marion County Sheriff's Department said more people could be involved, and that's why this is an ongoing investigation.
