July 5 2019

The scheme reportedly involved buying stolen credit card information on the dark web with Bitcoin. Then, using the stolen cards to fund their commissary accounts, inmates released the funds to co-conspirators on the outside.

Just over $8,000 was stolen throughout 43 transactions, deputies reported.

It’s unclear how many people were involved in the scheme. Reportedly, multiple inmates were involved, and one civilian has been arrested.
