Man and woman ring leaders of theft ring in Coachella Valley, CA ordered to stand trial. Tracy Lynn Cross of Rancho Mirage and Joe Anthony Loera of Cathedral City, both 39, are charged with 29 felonies, including burglary, forgery, manufacturing and selling government identification documents, and personating to obtain credit. Cross and Loera allegedly stole mail from hundreds of people across the state and used the information to create fake checks, credit cards and identification. Investigators told The Desert Sun in January that more than 200 alleged victims from as far as Sacramento were identified, and the fraud stretched back to 2008. Sheriff's Deputy Sean Patrick testified at today's hearing that investigators traced transactions at retail stores around the Coachella Valley through receipts they found at Cross' residence when serving a search warrant. Cross and Loera used fictitious checks to buy merchandise, or cashed them at stores including Walmart, Rite Aid and Tuesday Morning. In at least one instance, Cross used a fictitious check to buy items, and Loera returned them at a different store. (Source
