Sirbrina Bangs
Eleven people, all of Statesboro or Sylvania, have been indicted in connection with a continuing investigation into tax fraud and identity theft. Two indictments were unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia in Statesboro after the defendants made their first court appearances in the morning, U.S. Attorney Edward J. Tarver said. Both of the indictments allege that the defendants illicitly obtained and possessed debit cards and tax refund checks stemming from the preparation and submission of fraudulent tax returns.
