3 charged in $40K identity theft scheme

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Three New York men have been charged with using someone else’s ID to bilk a Pennsylvania bank out of $40,000. 

Jacob Gunther, 40, of New York City, Nathaniel C. Ora-Ham, 25, of the Bronx, and Anthony T. Sass, 25, of New York City, were arrested and charged with identity theft, forgery, theft and theft by deception. 

The suspects are accused of using a Connecticut man’s identity to open bank accounts and take out $40,000 in loans with an ST Bank in Cambria County between Wednesday and Tuesday. 

After opening the accounts, state police in Ebensburg said the men applied for loans with the bank. After the loans were approved, the suspects received a check for $40,000, according to police. 

After the men cashed the check, they deposited $25,000 and took $15,000 in cash, police said. 

The man whose identity was stolen called ST Bank after he was alerted to the incident through a fraud alert, according to police. He provided ST Bank with his identification, and the bank placed a hold on the remaining $25,000, police said.

Police said that after the bank learned of the scheme, the suspects drove to the ST Bank and attempted to wire the rest of the money. 

When a bank clerk stalled, the men fled, police said.

An alert was issued, and a Crsson Borough police officer pulled over the men on an unspecified time and date.

The suspects were taken to the state police barracks at Ebensburg, where they were identified. 

Gunther has been charged with fraud, identity theft, theft, theft by deception and receiving stolen property. 

Ora-Ham and Sass are charged with criminal conspiracy to commit fraud, identity theft, theft, theft by deception and receiving stolen property.

Police: Second suspect found in identity theft case – KSFY.com

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) – A second suspect in an identity theft case has been found after police say he fled when a local business caught him and another man using a fraudulent credit card.

Sgt. Loren McManus said 26-year-old Luis M. Sagarra-Calderin of Miami, Florida, was arrested Monday on one count of using a fraudulent credit card to obtain property or services, and two counts of identity theft.

McManus said Sagarra-Calderin contacted a rental car company to get keys to a car that police had searched. The company said he was not authorized to get the keys and sent a tow truck to recover it.

Officers were notified and found the man standing by the car near West Birnhamwood Drive and South Marion Road.

McManus said the man had fraudulent credit cards on him, and he was taken into custody.

The first suspect, 22-year-old Rioger Mulen-Perez of Miami, was arrested Sunday for two counts of the use of a fraudulent credit card to obtain services, 18 counts of identity theft, and 18 counts of possession of a forged instrument.

Authorities are still investigating the case.
