A Stockton woman accused of stealing identity and credit information in the mail to apply for unauthorized credit was sentenced to four and a half years in federal prison on Thursday.

Alisha Terese Rodriguez, 36, was convicted of credit application fraud, aggravated identity theft and being a felon in possession of a stolen firearm, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of California.

Rodriguez charged more than $60,000 on the fraudulently-obtained credit lines and was ordered to pay $60,010 in restitution, U.S. Attormey spokesperson Lauren Horwood said.

Court records stated during warranted searches, investigators found evidence of Rodriguez's misdeeds for more than 300 victims. She was found to have paid monthly bills she racked up with the fraudulently-obtained credit lines with funds from the bank accounts of other victims.
