DRASCO, AR (KAIT) -

A report of a suspicious truck lands three men in jail during an apparent card skimming investigation.

According to the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office, someone reported the truck next to gas pumps at a station in Drasco on April 6.

The sheriff's office noted several reports were taken concerning credit card numbers being stolen after using cards at gas stations.

On April 7, deputies located what they believed to be the same truck at the same pump. They identified the suspects but had to release them because they did not have enough evidence, according to the news release.

As the investigation continued, the sheriff's office contacted Conway police and asked them for help to arrest the men who were in the city at the time.

A search warrant was served at their hotel room and they were arrested.

Maikys Perez-Sobrado, 35, of Las Vegas, Luis Martinez, 29, of Houston, and Yasel Yedra, 34, of Miami, were arrested and booked into the Cleburne County Jail for breaking and entering and criminal trespass, according to the sheriff's office.

The investigation is ongoing.
