Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 03:58
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - Five people accused of running an identity theft ring in the New York City area have been charged in a 394-count indictment with stealing personal information from hundreds of dental patients to buy Apple gift cards. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance on Thursday said the ring bought $700,000 worth of gift cards after fraudulently obtaining "instant credit" that Apple had offered online in conjunction with Barclays Plc's Barclaycard, and then used the cards to buy Apple products. The alleged ringleader was Devin Bazile, a former Apple sales associate. Prosecutors said he recruited Apple store employees to misuse names, addresses, birth dates and Social Security numbers that were stolen by defendant Annie Vuong from more than 250 patients at a Manhattan dental office where she worked as a receptionist.

Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez glanced towards the media during his murder trial in Falls RiverBy Daniel Lovering FALL RIVER, Mass. (Reuters) - The man who Aaron Hernandez is charged with murdering had a wallet, cash and two sets of keys in his pockets when his body was found near the Massachusetts home of the former New England Patriots star, a police officer testified on Thursday. North Attleborough Police Captain Joseph DiRenzo said the body of semiprofessional football player Odin Lloyd was also found with a Boston Red Sox baseball hat, a towel, a marijuana cigar known as a blunt and five shell casings strewn nearby at an industrial park in the town on the evening of June 17, 2013. About two dozen law enforcement officers reported to the scene where Lloyd's body was found by a teenage jogger, DiRenzo said, recalling that they covered Lloyd's body with a tarp and canopy because thunderstorms were setting in that evening. "We made a decision that it was best to preserve evidence on the ground as best as possible." Hernandez sat quietly next to one of his attorneys during the testimony.
