A Silver Springs woman was sentenced last week to four years and nine months in federal prison for bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Elma Denise Sizelove, 40, was arrested in January 2017 after she attempted to pass an altered check at a local bank. Investigators discovered 150 pieces of mail and 47 checks in her car, which totaled $68,208.41, according to court records. The mail was from residents of Marion, Lake and Volusia counties.

Police were alerted to Sizelove’s activity after a victim saw an unidentified suspect pull up to her mailbox, remove the outgoing mail and drive off. The next day the victim was notified by her bank of Sizelove’s attempted deposit.

Sizelove, who fled from the bank, was identified by the Florida Identification Card she left behind.

When interviewed by officials, Sizelove admitted to stealing the mail in order to deposit the checks in her own account. She pleaded guilty to the charges Dec. 18, 2017.
