JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

One of six people wanted in an alleged credit card fraud scheme has turned himself in.

Christian Talmadge Packer, 24, surrendered to authorities last night. He remains at the Jefferson County Jail on an $885,000 bond for one count of trafficking in stolen identities, one count of theft, 18 counts of identity theft and 20 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

Investigators say a restaurant in north Jefferson County had its credit card system hacked by a malware virus, which compromised customers' account information.

Police believe the suspect bought some of that stolen information, cloned faked cards and used them for fraudulent purchases.

Authorities are still searching for four other men and a woman.
