Federal prosecutors say a California woman has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and aggravated identity theft charges in Rochester.
The U.S. Attorney for Western New York says Doree McGee of Los Angeles was part of an ID theft ring that targeted Bank of America customers. They used fake driver's licenses and other IDs to withdraw cash from people's bank accounts all around the country. Prosecutors say they got at least $325,000.
The scheme fell apart when a woman named Cassandra Montrevel was caught three years ago at a bank in Irondequoit. Investigators with several local police departments, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office and the Secret Service tracked her back to McGee and the other conspirators.
