So you've posted bond in the state's pending credit card fraud case against you. What's your next step? Clean up your act? Naw. Steal credit cards and blow cash like crazy in Vegas? That's more like it.
Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, told the Weekly that prosecutors didn't present evidence about how Tieu intercepted the cards at trial. He did say, however, that they think Tieu, or other members of the scheme, waited outside victims' homes for overnight delivery and took the cards.
Tony Khaki Nguyen, a 41-year-old Westminster man who also played a role in the scheme, was sentenced to four years and three months in federal prison, officials said. The fraud scheme was uncovered by a task force of postal inspectors and secret service agents.
