WILKES-BARRE — A couple from Luzerne County is accused of stealing credit card information from Lord & Taylor customers.

Farouk Rivera was arraigned Thursday on theft charges but a county detective says his wife Sabrina Rivera still remains at large.

Authorities say Farouk Rivera confessed to stealing the credit card numbers of about 75 customers at the retail store Lord & Taylor.

Authorities say Rivera did so, with the help of his wife Sabrina, who works at the store.

According to the Luzerne County District Attorney’s office, police were able to trace the charges back to the couple, who they say  racked up thousands of dollars, because they had items shipped to their home in Wilkes-Barre.

Anyone with information on Sabrina Rivera should contact police.
