Description: Jacksonville, FL - Texas Man Wanted By Federal Authorities Sentenced To Prison For Credit Card Fraud
U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Corrigan has sentenced Jose Carlos Terra Izquierdo (24, Amarillo, TX) to 24 months in federal prison for credit card fraud, to run consecutive to the 12 month and 1 day prison sentence he received in the District of Nebraska. The court also ordered Izquierdo to pay restitution to the companies that he defrauded.
According to court documents, in 2016, Izquierdo was convicted of credit card fraud in the District of Nebraska.

Federal authorities in Nebraska subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest. On March 2, 2017, Izquierdo was pulled over in Columbia County by the Florida Highway Patrol for an expired Texas tag. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, troopers located a credit card reader and stolen credit card information belonging to more than 50 victims.
This case was investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol and the United States Secret Service - Jacksonville Field Office.
Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison for credit card fraud, to run consecutive to the 12 month and 1 day prison sentence he received in the District of Nebraska.
