The Lubbock man accused in a nationwide identity theft ring is now in custody. Jose Zapata was arrested in Hobbs on Tuesday, and is awaiting extradition to Lubbock.

This week, a Lubbock Grand Jury indicted Zapata and his wife, Crystal Parham Zapata, for credit card abuse.

Police say Crystal Zapata was a work-at-home operator, who accepted credit card orders for shopnbc.com. The Zapatas allegedly saved those credit card numbers, to make purchases that were shipped to their east Lubbock home.

If tried and convicted, they could face up to twenty years in prison.
