109th Precinct Officers Kinkaid, Joseph and Rosado with the confiscated forged credit cards and skimmer.

A routine traffic stop turned into a major credit card bust on Sunday, as a Flushing man was arrested with hundreds of forged credit cards in his possession.

Vincent Lin, 21, of Robinson Street was pulled over by 109th Precinct officers near Main Street and 38th Avenue for a traffic infraction on July 23 at around 7:30 p.m , according to authorities.

However, police soon discovered that Lin had an open warrant and was in possession of 322 forged credit cards and a skimming device.

Lin was arrested and charged with possession of forged instrument, failure to obey a traffic device, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Inspector Judith Harrison, commander of the 109th Precinct, took to Twitter to commend Police Officers Kinkaid, Joseph and Rosado on the arrest.
