Man connected to ‘Hood Dynasty’ fraud case arrested


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – One week after a suspect part of an aspiring rap group was arrested for a credit card scheme, a second person has been taken into custody.

Eric Azona, of Huntsville, turned himself in to authorities Wednesday. He faces dozens of charges, including theft of property, identity theft and fraudulent use of a credit or debit card.

Police say Azcona and several others swiped debit and credit information from restaurants in Jefferson County and then created copies of the customers’ cards and bought gift cards, t-shirts and CD’s to help fund a rap group called “Hood Dynasty.”

Gardendale police say they are also looking for one more suspect wanted on 19 felony warrants. Devin Daiget Coleman, 26, is wanted on 11 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, 7 counts of identity theft and trafficking in stolen identities.

Coleman is also wanted for first-degree attempted theft of property. His bond is set at $405,000.

Anyone with information that can help investigators catch the rest of the wanted suspects should call Gardendale Police at (205) 631-8787.
