Man guilty of ID theft, fraud over Apple items
HOUSTON -- A Houston-area man has pleaded guilty to using fake IDs and stolen credit card numbers to buy more than $200,000 worth of Apple iPads and IPhones.
Federal prosecutors in Houston say Sharif John Reid of League City pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated identity theft and access device fraud. Sentencing will be April 23 for Reid, who faces up to 22 years in in prison.
Reid was on supervised release for access device fraud when he was arrested Aug. 7 in the Houston area. Prosecutors say the name on a credit card that Reid tried to use was linked to fraudulent purchases at other Apple stores in Louisiana and Texas.
Investigators say Reid used credit card numbers skimmed from an Austin business. Further details on the establishment weren't immediately released.
