Texan must repay money from mail, identity theft schemes

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — A Texan has been sentenced to prison for stealing mail and using fake checks in victims’ names at a Biloxi, Mississippi Wal-Mart.

The Sun Herald reports 47-year-old David Burney, of Granbury, Texas, received a 16-month prison term Tuesday that will run concurrent with a pending sentence in a criminal case in Hood County, Texas.

U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden also ordered Burney to help repay just over $6,500.

About $10,500 in losses have been reported in the scheme.

Burney pleaded guilty in December to conspiracy to commit mail theft and identity theft.
