A fraud ring bust at a Lauderdale Lakes home led to a man's arrest and the seizure of counterfeit checks, credit cards, guns, cash and other items, authorities said.

Jacquin Bullard, 24, was arrested last week on charges of possession of a weapon or ammo by a convicted felon and felony probation violation for fraudulent use of personal identification, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

The arrest came after detectives had received information that a fraud ring was operating out of a home near the 4000 block of Northwest 30th Terrace.

Detectives conducted surveillance on the house for months before they executed a search warrant on Sept. 2.

Once inside the home, detectives found a large amount of fraudulent/counterfeit checks, credit cards, stolen IDs and electronics. Detectives also recovered two assault rifles, two hand guns and approximately $65,000 worth of jewelry.

When Bullard was taken into custody at the home, he had over $8,200 in cash along with 57 fraudulent checks, officials said.

Bullard was being held without bond Thursday, Broward jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
