Seven fake credit cards were found in the pockets of Dammy Krane on June 1 when he was arrested at Opa-locka Executive Airport in Miami Dade, Florida.
A New Miami Times report said the police have charged him on nine counts of credit card forgery and grand theft at the Miami Dade’s criminal court.
Trouble started for the singer, whose real name is Oyindamola Emmanuel, after he was arrested for using a suspicious card to book a private jet flight to Washington, D.C.
According to police reports, details of which was published in Miami New Times, when the police searched him they found seven false credit cards in his wallet.
Agents from the mobile-phone booking app TapJets alerted the police, when they discovered that the first card Dammy Krane tendered was bogus. The jet company told Miami-Dade Police that Krane and a partner, Chukwuebuka Ilochonwu, had booked a $10,943 trip on a jet from Opa-locka to Washington, D.C.
Krane lists a permanent U.S. address in Baltimore on the police report, according to the report by Miami New Times.
Two police officers waited at the jet runway until Krane and Ilochonwu showed up.
Police searched the pair and found seven cards in Krane’s pants pocket. When authorities checked the cards later, all seven had numbers on the face that didn’t match the numbers on the security strip on the back.
Police said the 23-year-old singer used one of those cards to book his flight and then gave TapJet two other fake cards when he was asked for backup cards for the travel.
His co-defendant, Ilochonwu, police soon learned, was out on bond on four other credit card fraud charges.
He’d been arrested in April on felony charges stemming from a case in Miami Beach.
Dammy Krane who is now out on bail has tried to exculpate himself from the arrest mess, blaming “agents” and assuring fans he’s innocent.
