Pleasant Grove Post Office Burglary Solved

Tuesday, September 8, 2015 3:09 PM

On Wednesday Breneth L. Chase, 44, of Stockton, California pled guilty to 3 counts of Bank Fraud, a single count of Aggravated I.D. Theft, and to a single count of Possession Of Counterfeit I.D. Documents, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced. Chase entered her guilty pleas this morning before U.S. District Court Judge Kimberly J. Mueller.

This case is the product of an investigation of the United States Postal Inspection Service, Sutter County Sheriff's Office, Stockton Police Department, and Sutter Creek Police Department, with the assistance of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department. Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Rodriguez is prosecuting the case.

According to court documents, Chase, and co-defendant Dennis J. Machado, 43, also of Stockton, California, obtained U.S. Mail and Postal Keys stolen during burglaries of a Sutter County Post Office and a Sacramento County Post Office. This morning Chase admitted that she and Machado used such stolen U.S. Mail and contents to manufacture checks and government identifications to cash phony checks, apply for lines of credit, and make purchases at local department stores at the expense of local banks and credit unions. According to court documents, law enforcement recovered over five different manufactured identifications for each defendant. Chase admitted that she and Machado possessed personal and financial information for numerous Sutter and Sacramento County residents.

Chase is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Mueller for her five federal fraud felonies at 9:00 a.m. on November 18, 2015. Chase faces up to 30 years for each bank fraud conviction and up to 20 additional years for the false documents conviction. Chase will receive two additional consecutive years for her use of another's identity to commit the bank fraud offenses. Law enforcement reports that Machado has taken flight and was last seen in Stockton, California. Machado is sought for similar bank fraud and identity theft charges.
