Chicago man sentenced in connection to bank fraud, ID theft scheme

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) - A Chicago man was sentenced to 65 months in prison after pleading guilty on Tuesday to a bank fraud and identity theft scheme.

Court documents state Rodney Tyler, 51, and his associates used stolen bank account information to make unauthorized withdrawals from bank branches in Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana.

Tyler reportedly obtained the stolen information from victims' credit cards, debit cards, and driver's licenses.

In October 2014, Tyler was arrested in Troy, Missouri after he withdrew $5,000 from a victim's personal checking and savings accounts at a Bank of America location, according to court records.

Employees notified police of the suspicious withdrawal, which led to Tyler's arrest.

Tyler pleaded guilty to one felony county of bank fraud and one felony count of aggravated identity theft.
