Guilty plea in gift card scam

A man admitted his role Friday in a phony credit card scheme that involved other people.

As part of a plea agreement with Allen County prosecutors, Anthony D. Henry, 49, of the 3300 block of Lillie Street, pleaded guilty in Allen Superior Court to one count of corrupt business influence.

In exchange, prosecutors will recommend he be given four years in prison at his sentencing hearing next month.

The group took fraudulent Visa and MasterCard gift cards, to be used just like credit cards, to stores and made large purchases in 2010.

Many of the suspects would sign their real names to the receipts, according to court documents.

In many cases, court documents said, the group somehow had real credit card numbers belonging to other people on the fake gift cards.

At least five others have pleaded guilty for their roles in the credit card scheme.

Carl D. Henry, 53, was sentenced to three years in prison. Wyatt J. Henry Jr., 32, was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison. Terrell M. Henry, 34, was sentenced to two years in prison.

Jason Caley, 39, was sentenced to two years’ probation and Felicia Jones was sentenced to four years’ probation.
