Three Plead Guilty To Aggravated Identity Theft
A group of three individuals have pleaded guilty to using stolen checks and identification documents to commit bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. In May of 2020, 34 year old Anica Marie Santiago, Cregg Mitchell Feazell 28 and Patricia Butcher age 31 broke into the Iron Furnace Trailhead in Lee County, Virginia and stole personal items, including identification documents, Social Security cards, and personal checks. The three took one of the stolen checks to a bank and cashed the check using the stolen identification papers. The group used the stolen checks and ID’s at least three other times. All three defendants pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft. A judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing guidelines and other statutory factors.
