Second city man arrested in ID fraud

In an update to a story previously reported here, Larry Alexander reports:

A second Lancaster County man has been charged by the U.S. Department of Justice in an identity-theft scheme that targeted DUI offenders in Lancaster and York counties.

John B. Spencer III, 30, of Lancaster, is the second man charged with conspiracy to commit identity fraud. Earlier this month, Donald E. Stoner, 37, also of Lancaster, was charged with the same crime.

According to the DOJ, Stoner and Spencer, working together, searched the Internet for the names of individuals convicted of drunken driving in Lancaster and York counties. The two men would then go to the courthouse in those counties and secure court records, which included the offenders’ Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers and other valuable information.
