[Ed. – No honor among thieves]
An unlikely duo led investigators to expose an alleged identity theft operation: a confessed burglar who told police something fishy was going on in a home he burglarized and one of the fraud suspects who didn’t tidy up before she let authorities in to the house.
The U.S. Secret Service and Lauderhill police said they found a trove of evidence — in plain view — at the home that the residents were involved in an identity theft and credit card fraud conspiracy.
Eric Jermaine Spivey, 27, and Chenequa Austin, 38, both pleaded not guilty this week to five federal charges of aggravated identity theft, fraud and conspiracy.
