Jacksonville, Florida – Henry William Carabeo Boned (28, Miami) has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Boned faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and payment of restitution to victims of his crime. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
According to the plea agreement, in the early part of 2019, Boned and his co-defendants, Duani Garcia and Raiquel Monteagudo Torres used credit or debit cards re-encoded with stolen account numbers to purchase, among other things, phone cards and gift cards at Walmarts throughout the Clay County, Florida area. In February 2019, deputies with the Clay County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) detained Boned and Torres at the self-checkout area of a Walmart while both individuals were in the process of attempting to complete a fraudulent transaction. Deputies detained Garcia as he walked out of the store. During a search of the three individuals, deputies located 40 gift and credit cards that had been re-encoded with stolen credit card information. Further investigation resulted in the seizure of computer media associated with the three individuals. A forensic examination of the computer media located an additional 253 stolen credit card account numbers.
On March 16, 2020, United States District Judge Brian J. Davis sentenced Garcia, to 12 months and 1 day in federal prison and payment of restitution to the victims. Co-defendant, Torres is a fugitive from law enforcement.
