EUFAULA, Ala. (WDHN) — A Eufaula man has been sentenced to multiple crimes including bank fraud and identity theft.

On April 26, Charles Andre Turner, 54, of Eufaula, Alabama, was sentenced to over three and a half years in prison for stealing mail, bank fraud, and aggravated identity theft, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Alabama.

Turner’s prison sentence will be followed by three years of supervised release.

According to court records and information presented during his sentencing hearing, Turner was previously convicted in 2011 of the destruction of letterboxes, theft of mail, bank fraud, and aggravated identity theft.

After serving a nearly eight-year prison sentence, Turner was on supervised release when his U.S. Probation Officer found that he had opened 33 new lines of credit, in violation of the terms of his supervised release. On May 10, 2021, agents searched his home under the search policy of the Court and discovered over 100 pieces of stolen mail and notes containing information about victims’ identities and credit or banking information, according to a release.

An additional investigation in October 2020 through May 2021 found that Turner stole mail from a Columbus, Georgia post office and took it back home with him to Eufaula, where he began using identity and financial information from the mail to obtain credit cards, open bank accounts, and make financial transactions for himself, officials say. Turner was able to steal over $50,000 from a single victim’s bank account.

There is no parole in the federal system.

Turner pleaded guilty to possessing stolen mail, bank fraud, and aggravated identity theft on January 6, 2022.
