The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office has arrested at least 12 people in connection with one of the county's largest identity theft investigations.
The 2-year-long investigation has strung the department in a web of separate fraud cases.
"This has been an unbelievable investigation," says Baldwin County Sheriff, Bill Massee.
Most recently, the department arrested 25-year-old O'shay Carswell and 24-year-old Quintonio Reyes.
Sheriff Massee says they cashed over $154 thousand worth of legitimate treasury checks in Baldwin County.
"In essence, it's in the right name, but to the wrong person. And the volume of dollars is unbelievable," Massee says.
The investigation started in 2010, when Georgia Military College reported someone was cashing fraudulent checks with their account information. This month, the same thing happened to the Oconee Regional Medical Center.
