Two from Montgomery Indicted on Identity Theft Charges, U.S. Attorney Says

A federal grand jury indicted Jonathan Henry, 26, of Bethesda, and Dominique Davis, 27, of Germantown, on Thursday on charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The indictment was returned April 11, and unsealed Thursday upon the arrest of Henry, the statement said. Davis is detained in Montgomery County on unrelated charges.

According to the 12-count indictment, between October 2015 and April 2018, Henry and Davis allegedly stole the personal identifiable information of at least 11 victims and created fake driver’s licenses with the stolen information, the statement said.

Using the fake driver’s licenses, Henry and Davis allegedly applied for credit card accounts at retail stores and cellular telephone accounts at telecommunication stores in the names of the victims without the victims’ authorization, the statement said.

Using these fraudulent credit cards and accounts, the defendants made $45,206.13 worth of fraudulent charges in North Carolina, Maryland and Virginia, the statement said.

Henry is also charged with 11 counts of aggravated identity theft.

Henry and Davis face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for wire fraud.

Henry faces a mandatory consecutive sentence of two years per count of aggravated identity theft.
