Tijeras Man Pleads Guilty to Bank Fraud, ID and Mail Theft

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico man has pleaded guilty to federal charges of bank fraud, aggravated identity theft and mail theft.

Prosecutors say 36-year-old Jesse Tucker of Tijeras had a change of plea hearing Wednesday in federal court in Albuquerque.

They say Tucker obtained almost $70,000 by using personal identifiers and checks from stolen mail between November 2016 and May 2017.

Tucker admitted to using the personal identifiers of nine people to create and obtain counterfeit ID cards and driver's licenses with his photograph.

He then used the fraudulent IDs to falsify checks, complete credit applications and apply for loans.

Prosecutors say Tucker faces up to 30 years in prison for bank fraud, up to five years for mail theft and up to two years on the aggravated ID theft charges.
