GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Harrison County woman will be sentenced Oct. 15 on federal charges of conspiracy to commit mail theft and identity theft.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1ec0YnE ) Megan Murley pleaded guilty earlier this month. She is facing a maximum prison term of five years.

Murley was one of five people indicted in the case.

Prosecutors says they allegedly stole checks from mail depositories and using personal financial information, including banking account and routing numbers, to reproduce bogus checks that were later cashed at Wal-Mart stores.

The conspiracy occurred in Harrison County between Oct. 4, 2013, and Nov. 18, 2014.

They allegedly used fake checks they reproduced to buy food, clothing, electronics, toys, gift cards and prepaid credit cards at Wal-Mart stores in Pass Christian and Biloxi.
