LAS VEGAS — Nineteen people were arrested in Nevada and eight other states in a Las Vegas-based identity theft and trafficking ring that a federal prosecutor characterized as a sophisticated racketeering organization involving 50 people nationwide.
 
The scheme revolved around the buying and selling of pilfered debit and credit card information on an Internet site called "Carder.su," U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden said Friday in Las Vegas.
 
"The extent of the theft and sale of personal information uncovered by this investigation is astonishing," Bogden said in a statement dubbing the case "Operation Open Market."
