FL: Dothan woman convicted of identity theft charges

Matt Elofson reports:

A jury convicted a Dothan woman Wednesday afternoon of seven felony charges in connection to a conspiracy to defraud the government through identity theft and the filing of false tax returns.


According to evidence from the trial, Macena provided stolen identities to Ivory Bolen, also of Dothan, who used the identities to file false tax returns that fraudulently requested refunds from the government.

Bolen attempted to have the refunds deposited onto prepaid debit cards, which were to be mailed to addresses controlled by Bolen and Macena.

The statement also said trial evidence revealed Macena obtained the identities from Roderick Neal, a former Dothan bail bondsman, who had access to the personal information of individuals who had been detained at the Dothan City Jail.
