Kansas Indictment Accuses 13 in $3.5M ID Theft Scheme

KSAL StaffMay 28, 2016

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A federal indictment in southern Kansas accuses 13 people of roles in an identity-theft ring involving more than $3.5 million of thievery.

The 50-count indictment unsealed Thursday in Wichita alleges the conspirators divided up the work of stealing from mailboxes, forging identification documents, obtaining fraudulent credit cards and shopping with stolen identities.

Authorities say some conspirators were paid in drugs for their labor.

Prosecutors said items bought with ill-gotten gains from the scheme included a $43,500 Jaguar car and a $62,000 Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

The indictment’s charges include aggravated identity theft, trafficking in stolen identities, receipt of stolen mail, unlawful production of identity documents, bank fraud, and drug and gun counts.
