STOCKTON, CA - A man was sentenced to prison for stealing mail and ID fraud Friday.
Frank Antwoine Johnson, 33, was sentenced to three years and one month in prison for possession of stolen mail, credit card fraud and illegal possession of id documents, said Lauren Horwood, spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of California.
According to court documents, in June 2011, Johnson and two others were seen in a van pulling alongside neighborhood mailboxes and stealing mail. When police pulled the van over, they found evidence that Johnson and his accomplices were cataloging mail, profiling people for ID theft and going through mail for information to use in id and financial fraud later.
Horwood said Alisha Grim, 40, was sentenced to three years and one month in prison and Courtney L. Williams, 24, was sentenced to two years and three months in prison in February for the same crime.
All three people were ordered to pay restitution for damaging the mailboxes.
