Prosecutors said the five used the cards to go on a spending spree at restaurants, liquor stores, and shops including Bloomingdale’s.
Investigators began looking at the group after one traveler rushing to catch a flight accidentally left his credit card behind at a JetBlue counter at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Later, someone used the card to run up $508 in charges, the Manhattan district attorney’s office said.
