Sacramento brothers sentenced for bank fraud, ID theft

Two Sacramento brothers were sentenced today to four years in prison for stealing the identity of U.S. Postal Service and department store customers to commit bank fraud.

Glen Patrick Shoults, 27, and Jackie Lester Shoults III, 31, were assisted by co-defendant Kathleen S. Wade, who worked at a department store between February and mid-December 2012, according to a federal Department of Justice news release. The Shoults brothers, at times using Wade's sales clerk position, made fraudulent transactions on bank and credit card accounts of numerous victims.

The brothers obtained stolen mail largely from Sacramento and Elk Grove postal customers to further their scheme, which involved using victims' identities and credit card accounts to purchase and later return high-value items for cash, credit and exchange.

The activities were uncovered by the department store's loss prevention team.

Glen and Jackie Shoults were sentenced by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley.

Wade, who has been convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and to possess stolen U.S. mail, is to appear before Judge Nunley for sentencing Oct. 3.
