ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Two south Georgia residents have been indicted after officials say they stole millions in treasury checks.

Jatin Patel, 42, and Donna Evans Moore, 38, were indicted by a Federal Grand Jury for conspiracy to possess stolen U.S. Treasury checks, passing forged securities and embezzling public monies, embezzling government property, and aggravated identity theft.

The two are both from Tifton, and were arrested Wednesday and arraigned in an Albany federal court the same day.

According to the indictment, Patel and Moore cashed out $3.5 million in checks.

If convicted, the two could face up to 17 years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.
