A Red Deer man faces charges in the United States for allegedly using at least 32 credit cards to conduct fraud in connection with identification information.

Red Deer City RCMP arrested Eric Bogle, 23, in Red Deer on a warrant issued in the United States on July 2.

The United States Attorney’s Office Southern District of New York say the arrest was part of the largest co-ordinated takedown of cyber criminals in history. The co-ordinated efforts were the results of a two-year undercover operation led by the FBI.

The operation involved 13 countries and resulted in 25 arrests, including 12 arrests in the United States and 13 arrests in seven other countries, including Canada. Bogle was one of two Canadians arrested. The other Canadian was not named.

Bogle is scheduled to appear in Court of Queens Bench Court in Edmonton today. The Department of Justice Canada is representing the U.S. Attorney on the matter.
