According to the New York Post, six of the eight defendants, ranging in age from 18 to 25, were indicted in Brooklyn court yesterday (18), while two suspects, Armani Miller, 24, and Johan Santos, 19, are still at large, prosecutors said.
Court documents say four of the suspects also bragged about their stolen money on social media, posting multiple photos of themselves with cash in hand, and prosecutors say they stole personal funds from more than 100 people, transferred relief money that should have been wired into other people’s accounts to their own, and then withdrew cash from branches in Brooklyn and Queens.
They also used the same cell phone numbers and addresses multiple times, prosecutors said. According to FBI data, they began committing the crime last June and continued until last month, and it is not yet known how they stole the personal information of the more than 100 victims.
