Federal prosecutors say a District Heights man has been sentenced in an identity theft and bank fraud scheme.
Thirty-year-old Alvin Spencer was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison. He was also ordered to pay more than $165,000 in restitution and to forfeit jewelry.
According to Spencer’s plea agreement, in 2006, he cashed checks stolen from the mail at the Upper Marlboro post office provided to him by a conspirator. Prosecutors say Spencer received fraudulent driver’s licenses and other identification in the names of the people listed on the stolen checks.
