In addition to the thirteen suspects arrested on state charges, two individuals were arrested today on federal wire fraud and identity theft charges. In a thirty- nine count federal indictment unsealed today, Tampa residents Maurice Larry and Marterrance Holloway are charged with conspiring to defraud the United States, commit wire fraud, aggravated identity theft and access device fraud.

“The Federal Grand Jury indictment and subsequent arrest of Marterrence Q. Holloway and Maurice J. Larry today demonstrates the cooperation between local and federal agencies to combat identity theft related tax fraud in the Tampa Bay area.

This investigation is the result of teamwork within the Tampa Area Alliance, which includes dedicated agents and investigators of the IRS – Criminal Investigation, the Tampa Police Department, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and the Unites States Secret Service,” said IRS Special Agent in Charge Jim Robnett.

 “While this stage of investigation is drawing to an end, we recognize that proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt remains, and are thankful for the Unites States Attorney’s Office dedication in prosecuting these cases. Identity theft has the greatest effect on the most vulnerable among us, such as the elderly and deceased victims and their family. The Tampa Field Office of the IRS – Criminal Investigation will continue to dedicate the crucial resources to facilitate these joint investigations and subsequent prosecutions.”

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office is committed to working with our federal, state, and local partners in strengthening our response to Stolen Identity Refund Fraud (SIRF) crimes,” said U.S. Attorney Robert E. O’Neill. “We look forward to participating in the Tampa Alliance and taking advantage of the new streamlining authority to federally prosecute SIRF cases. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners in seeking the most effective way to combat this conduct.”
