FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VIRGINIA MAN CHARGED WITH BANK FRAUD IN SCHEME INVOLVING CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS AND UNIFORMS STOLEN FROM GYM LOCKERS ON MILITARY BASES
GREENBELT, Maryland - United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein announces that today a federal grand jury has indicted Derrick Lamont Mosley, age 34, of Stone Ridge, Virginia, for bank fraud utilizing credit and bank cards to take monies from third parties’ accounts by falsely representing himself as that third party through their stolen identification.
The two-count indictment charges Mosley with breaking into gym lockers at various military bases from June 2005 to January 2006, including Andrews Air Force Base, Dover Air Force Base, Fort Meyer, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Quantico Marine Corps Base, Bolling Air Force Base and Fort Belvoir, and stealing debit and credit cards, government identification documents, car keys, government airplane keys and uniforms. The indictment alleges that Mosley then used the stolen items at the Aberdeen and Andrews military bases credit unions and other banks, to take and attempt to take money from the accounts of the individuals he had robbed by representing himself as that person.
The maximum penalty for bank fraud is 30 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. Mosley will be scheduled for an arraignment at a future date.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the investigative work performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Air Force Investigations, Air Force Office of Special Investigation, Army CID, and the Ft. Meyer Police Department. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Bonnie S. Greenberg, who is prosecuting the case.
