A Dover couple was indicted by a federal grand jury on fraud charges after police say they stole people’s identities, opened credit card accounts and made several purchases with those cards.

The indictment alleges that Tyron Burgess, 34, and Tyshene Mungo, 38, started the account takeover scheme and made purchases at stores in Delaware and New York.

The two are charged with four counts of mail fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud, access device fraud, identity theft and aggravated identity theft.

In addition, Burgess is also accused of wire fraud, bank fraud and misuse of a social security number.

If convicted, the couple faces up to 30 years for each charge.
