D.A.: Gift Card with Stolen Credit Account Data Used at Florist

Spring Valley man charged with forgery.

A Spring Valley man has been charged with using a gift card encoded with stolen credit card account data to make a purchase at a local florist, according to Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe.

Nicos Dinkins, 24, of 57 Hickory St., Spring Valley, has been arrested and arraigned on one count of second-degree forgery in connection with a July 2 incident.

Dinkins is accused of using a Visa gift card to purchase flowers from A. Dykstra Florist on Chestnut Ridge Road in Spring Valley. Zugibe said the gift card was encoded with stolen credit card account information and detectives from his office arrested Dinkins after a probe by the Rockland County Special Investigations Unit.

Dinkins was arraigned in the Town of Ramapo Justice Court before the Judge Rhoda Schoenberger, who set bail at $10,000. Dinkins is scheduled to return to court on Dec. 13.
