Man jailed in fraud scheme

SEABROOK — The simple act of leaving his wallet on the counter helped police catch an Arizona man who will spend the next 12 months in jail, convicted of an elaborate credit card fraud scheme police traced back to New York state.

According to Seabrook prosecutor Scott Mendes, Gilbert Gonzales, 48, of 6632 East 42nd St., Tucson, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to fraudulent use of a credit card as part of a plea deal that reduced the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor.
