CSPD: Organized crime group stole $40K from banks using stolen checks

COLORADO SPRINGS - A criminal racketeering organization with over a dozen members has stolen over $40,000 from local banks, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department.  Police say the group of 14 would recruit people to open bank accounts in their own names, then deposit stolen checks.  The recruits would hand over the debit cards to the organizers who would pull money out of the accounts before the bank was able to process the stolen checks.  The people opening the accounts were generally paid for their involvement.  Investigators say the money was then laundered through vehicle purchases.

The CSPD Financial Crimes Unit has been investigating the group for several months.
