A man suspected of financial card fraud was caught with evidence including victims’ information, said Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner said. Darryll Michael Garrett, 21, of Warner Robins, a student at Georgia Southern University, is charged with burglary as well as seven counts of financial identity fraud and eight counts of financial transaction card fraud, he said. Several GSU students reported being victims of fraud when “their cards were illegally used at local businesses and on the internet for online transactions,” Turner said.
