Two arrests in Sam’s Club identity theft ring – Three more sought

LONG BEACH—Police are still looking for three suspects involved in a fraud ring after discovering that two suspects were already in custody for unrelated charges. Forty three year old Ayesha Wilson of Long Beach and 34-year-old Nanette Macon of Adelanto had been allegedly defrauding a local Sam’s Club since 2009, while their missing accomplices were responsible for at least 10 other cases.

Smile for the camera! As part of the process to establish fraudulent accounts, the suspects had photos taken, which police hope will help identify and locate them.

According to a press release from the Long Beach Police Department, a joint investigation from local authorities and Sam’s Club parent company Walmart revealed that the suspects established credit accounts using the identities of out-of-state victims before using that credit to purchase gift cards and electronics.

While Long Beach Police are searching throughout Los Angeles County for the outstanding suspects using photos taken for the false Sam’s Club accounts, the two suspects already in custody proved easier to find. Wilson was arrested by the Beverly Hills Police Department on February 24th, roughly a month before the April 22nd arrest of Macon in San Bernardino. Both were taken into custody on unrelated charges.

Records show that both women were arrested for previous instances of identity theft, but those charges are said to be unrelated. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office explicitly tacked on 39 more counts – when they enter their preliminary hearing later this month, Wilson and Macon will face 21 and and 18 counts of identity theft, respectively.

The Long Beach Police Department did not offer any comments while the investigation proceeded.

Anyone who may information on the identities of these suspects is asked to call Long Beach Police Identity Theft Detective Andre Sanchez at (562) 570-7602. Anonymous tips may be submitted by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), texting TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or visiting
