A South Florida couple is facing dozens of charges after they were caught trying to place a credit card skimmer on a fuel pump at a gas station in southwest Miami-Dade, police said.

Jorge Enrique Noa-Carreno, 38, and Yamisleidys Llano-Perez, 33, were arrested Tuesday on multiple counts of credit card forgery/intent to defraud, unlawful use of a scanning device, trafficking in counterfeit credit cards and organized scheme to defraud, according to Miami-Dade Police arrest reports.

Noa-Carreno was being held on $87,500 bond Wednesday, jail records showed. Llano-Perez was being held on $102,500 bond. Attorney information wasn't immediately available.

According to the arrest reports, the couple was caught installing a credit card skimming device on a fuel pump at the Chevron gas station at 13710 Southwest 152nd Street.

Police found the couple in possession of a total of 10 counterfeit credit cards, as well as a tool used to open fuel pumps, the reports said.
