Suspects in credit card fraud and high speed chase charged


PORTAGE (WKZO) -- An Illinois man who led police on a hair-raising and dangerous chase from Portage to New Buffalo has been charged with assault in Van Buren County.

They claim 23-year-old Traison Watson endangered the lives of police officers as he sped west on I-94 at speeds well over 100 mph on Tuesday.

Portage Police suspect he was the getaway driver for 24-year-old Bonnesha Cole, who has been charged in Kalamazoo County with possessing and using a fake credit card at the Target Store on S. Westnedge Tuesday.

She is being held on 25-thousand dollars bond.

Watson is being held on 100-thousand bond, and could also face more charges in Kalamazoo County.

From evidence seized in the car, they think the pair be part of a multi-state Identity theft ring.
