A Roseville man will serve three and a half years in prison for multiple counts of bank fraud, mail theft and conspiracy to commit such offenses, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Darryl M. Everett, 47, of Roseville, was ordered to pay more than $10,000 in restitution to his victims and is also sentenced to five years of supervised release following his prison sentence.
According to court documents, Everett stole U.S. Mail on multiple occasions, from the customer lobbies of the Discovery Post Office, Town and Country Post Office, and Strong Ranch Post Office. Everett altered stolen financial instruments found in the stolen mail and organized others to cash the altered checks and money orders at Sacramento County financial institutions. There were more than four banks and 20 postal customers victimized in the scheme.
This case was the product of an investigation by the U. S. Postal Inspection Service, the Sacramento Police Department, and the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department. Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Rodriguez is prosecuting this case and the related cases against Everett’s criminal associates.
The investigation is ongoing and at least five others from Sacramento have also been charged in this scheme.
