16 indicted in North Texas smash-and-grabs that fueled ID thefts
Federal officials announced Thursday that 16 people have been indicted on federal charges accusing them of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft as part of a smash-and-grab gang of thieves. Fourteen of them are from Florida, where police have said the so-called Felony Lane Gang originated. The name comes from the gang cashing stolen checks in the bank drive-through lane farthest from the tellers. A 76-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Aug. 13 charges them with federal violations that are believed to have caused more than $1.3 million in losses to banks, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Texas.

Three Charged in Federal ID Theft Scheme in Boise, ID
Three people were indicted Tuesday on charges they stole more than a dozen people’s identities and then spent thousands of those victims’ money in southern Idaho stores. The three spent nearly $1,900 at the Twin Falls Best Buy and more than $25,000 at Boise-area stores, say documents from federal court in Boise. For about a year, starting in July 2013, the group devised a scheme to shop at a number of southern Idaho stores using credit cards with stolen information. The three got personal information from several victims in California, including their names, birthdates, Social Security numbers, addresses, driver’s license numbers and financial account information. They then ran credit reports to get the victims’ financial profiles and created fake IDs to open credit cards with the stores. Then they helped each other by sharing the fake IDs, shopping together with the credit cards and acting as “lookouts” during the credit applications and transactions. One woman spent nearly $1,900 at Best Buy using the store credit card and a fake ID on July 21. In Boise, two women spent more than $14,500 at Lowe’s stores, $4,000 at JC Penny’s, $4,300 at Sears and almost $1,400 at Victoria’s Secret. (Source
