WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man indicted in a scheme to steal mail and forge identification documents has been sentenced to almost four years in prison for using a stolen identity to take out a $43,000 loan for a Jaguar.

The U.S. attorney’s office says that 32-year-old Jacob Michael Martin was sentenced Monday for one count each of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Prosecutors say Martin obtained a loan from Wells Fargo Bank in another person’s name by presenting the victim’s Social Security number. Martin also showed a driver’s license with his picture but the victim’s name.

The crime occurred when he applied for a loan for the 2012 Jaguar at CarMax. Martin is among 13 people indicted last year in the scheme to steal mail and shop with stolen identities.
