Police have busted up an identity theft ring operating in south Florida.  A bank teller and five others - namely Janice Coachman of North Lauderdale, Latoya Robinson of Fort Lauderdale, Roberta Huha of Dania Beach, Jude Thompson of Lauderhill, Vincent Ware of North Lauderdale, and Curisha Bryant of West Park - were all arrested in a 3 county crack down of an identity theft in south Florida.  Four other suspects are still at large.

The 21 count federal indictment accused most of the defendants of using stolen credit cards, stealing identities, cashing forged checks as well as recruiting others to joing the ring.  Charges include aggravated identity theft and bank fraud.

According to the indictment, Curisha Bryant was a bank teller at a BankAtlantic branch, where she allegedly shared information from her customers' accounts with three of her co-defendants.
