HANNIBAL, Mo. -- An Indiana man faces charges in Marion County in making fictitious credit cards in Hannibal.

Rondell L. Sims, 23, of Granger, Ind., was charged with possession of a forging instrument.

Hannibal Police Department officers dispatched at 11:06 a.m. Tuesday for suspicious activity in the 4000 block of Market Street made contact with two men in a hotel room. Sims gave officers multiple blank credit cards, the department said, and officers took Sims and another man from Indianapolis into custody. Devices for making fictitious credit cards were located with a search warrant, police said, and Sims and the other man were taken to the Hannibal Police Department for questioning.

Sims was taken to the Marion County Jail and placed on a 24-hour hold. The other man was released.

The 10th Judicial Circuit Court of Marion County issued a warrant Wednesday for Sims. He remains in the Marion County Jail with bond set at $10,000 cash or surety.
