Mason City man charged with credit card fraud pleads guilty

first_imgMASON CITY — A Mason City man has pleaded guilty to credit card fraud charges in Cerro Gordo and Franklin counties. 29-year-old Wayne Davis was arrested in September and charged in Cerro Gordo County with ongoing criminal conduct and three counts of unauthorized use of credit cards, as well as one count of unauthorized use of a credit card in Franklin County. A criminal complaint stated Davis was identified by an employee who turned his identification into the authorities, with the Iowa State Patrol conducting a traffic stop on Davis where a credit card skimmer, computer and cards were allegedly seized. The complaint says an examination of those items revealed that Davis was purchasing card numbers on the dark web. A search warrant at Davis’ residence allegedly produced stolen credit cards and a card skimmer. Davis pleaded guilty to one count of unauthorized use of a credit card in Franklin County and was sentenced earlier this month to time served and ordered to pay over $430 in restitution. Davis last week pleaded guilty to the Cerro Gordo County charges and is scheduled to be sentenced on January 6th.last_img read more

Britain’s Brown vows to be in step with U.S. on Iraq

first_imgBy David Stringer THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON – Prime Minister Gordon Brown pledged Tuesday to keep Britain’s Iraq policy in line with that of the United States, seeking to allay fears the country’s move out of the southern city of Basra marked the start of a major withdrawal. Brown told a news conference that a decision on a potential future British troop cut would be taken only in consultation with the United States and other allies. Some U.S. officials have criticized Britain’s decision to leave Iraq’s second largest city, raising worries about the security of supply routes to Baghdad and London’s long-term commitment to the war. “We are on exactly the same path that I have set out, which is that we will continue to discharge our obligations to the Iraqi people, that we support their democracy,” Brown told reporters at his Downing Street office when asked if he remained in step with President Bush. Bush told reporters Monday night that if security in Iraq continues to improve, the United States may be able to carry out its duties with fewer troops. But Brown refused to say whether Britain will cut its 5,500 troops when it hands security responsibilities for Basra to Iraqi forces in the autumn – the remaining province over which Britain has responsibility. “We will have to make a further decision when the time is right,” Brown said. The International Crisis Group, a Brussels, Belgium-based think-tank, said in June that Basra had become destabilized by warring militias and that locals believed British forces had been beaten into retreat. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Still no name for top PBA post; Phoenix plans Kia overhaul

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netChito Narvasa’s term as the PBA commissioner ends in two days, but the league’s board, which was split in two recently in what was the biggest controversy to rock Asia’s pioneering pro league, is far from naming a new one.The board actually hasn’t even come close to finalizing a list of candidates.ADVERTISEMENT “We have none,” a member of the board, who spoke on condition that he is not identified, told the Inquirer over the phone on Thursday when asked if they had names that they would want to push as a candidate.The same source also expressed fear that, with the uncertainty of tenure that every commissioner would have to go through, the board would have a hard time finding a man of unquestionable character who would risk a career in the corporate world to work as commissioner.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over Thunder“Would you leave your old company where you have a good career and you’re earning a lot to serve as commissioner?” the board member asked as he stressed that he would make a pitch for a longer term once the board convenes for the first time in the post-Narvasa era next month.He also said that unlike in the past when Narvasa was appointed to the post, the board should not tap the services of a headhunter, and that as a collegial body, the members should come up with the names themselves.
