Three Sacramento residents indicted in bank fraud scheme

Three Sacramento residents were indicted today by a federal grand jury for allegedly stealing the identity of U.S. Postal Service and department store customers to commit bank fraud.

Glen Patrick Shoults, 26, Jackie Lester Shoults, 31 and Kathleen S. Wade, 29, allegedly obtained stolen mail largely from Sacramento and Elk Grove postal customers.

According to court documents, between February 2012 and Dec. 15, 2012, Wade worked at a Sacramento department store. Her boyfriend, Glen Shoults, and his brother, Jackie Shoults, are alleged to have conspired with Wade to use her position to make fraudulent transactions on bank and credit card accounts.

During the scheme, each defendant allegedly posed as true account holders, and presented and used stolen victim account-holder financial instruments to buy merchandise at the department store where Wade worked, according to a federal Department of Justice news release. They then returned the merchandise for cash, credit and exchange.

The defendants' conduct was uncovered with the assistance of the department store's loss prevention team, authorities said.

The case resulted from an investigation by the U.S.Postal Inspection Service and the Sacramento Police Department.
