The first identity theft report came July 9 from a sister of one of the victims who died, Fernandez Rundle ha detto.
The woman noticed her sister’s mailing address was changed and replacement credit cards were mailed to a new address, Fernandez Rundle ha detto. The sister also reported purchases and wire transfers.
Rundle said that the suspects have stolen at least $ 45,000 and attempted to steal another $ 67,000 before being arrested.
The suspects face several charges each, including identity theft and organized scheme to defraud. Based on the charges, she said they could face 15 per 30 anni di prigione.
Bond has been set for $ 1 million for what Fernandez Rundle called the “main suspect” while the other two are being held on $ 500,000 e $ 430,000 bond each.
Court and arrest records have not been posted at this time.
L'indagine è in corso, the prosecutor said.
Family members of other Surfside victims who suspect they are also victims of identity theft were encouraged to contact law enforcement.
