US v Jerome Omega Boulden Jr et al
Case Number: 
4:20-CR-382
Press Release: 101 Indicted in Transnational Cell Phone Trafficking Conspiracy - August 2021

Case Summary

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­In this case, 112 individuals are charged in a cell phone trafficking conspiracy in the Eastern District of Texas. The superseding indictment charges alleged members of a multi-layered criminal organization, to include runners, suppliers, device traffickers, and exporters, with theft of personal electronics, including cell phones, tablets, laptops, and smart watches, from cell phone stores within the North Texas area.  The stolen electronics were then exported overseas for resale. The defendants are alleged to have stolen electronics by armed robberies as well as through various fraud schemes. It is alleged that the conspirators also utilized compromised store employees to activate phones using fake identities or fraudulently adding lines to legitimate customer accounts.  Other schemes allegedly involved the use of fake identity information as well as legitimate customer information to swap SIM cards, enabling the defendants to verify banking information through text messages and withdraw funds from customer accounts. The superseding indictment alleges that nearly $100 million of products were sold to foreign importers.  The investigation has revealed that approximately 20,000 products were acquired by identity theft.  The overall estimated losses exceed $42 million.
