HOUSTON -

The alleged mastermind of a fraud scheme involving the use of fake identities to steal cars from CarMax is behind bars.

Jeareme Mosley and two others are accused of conspiring to give false credit information in order to steal cars from Car Max and Santander Financial Services.

Mosley was accused of providing personal information, like addresses, social security information and bank information for customers to submit fraudulent online credit applications.

In court documents, investigators say it was a fraud scheme that led to theft of seven cars worth $150,000.

The documents showed that a CarMax employee "determined that all of the listed transactions contained fraudulent employment, income, addresses and Social Security Numbers. The defendant was identified by CarMax employees from photo spreads as the person who accompanied each of the listed customers to take delivery of the vehicles."

CarMax released a statement which read, "We take this situation very seriously and are working closely with authorities on the investigation.  Any questions about this police matter should be directed to the authorities."

Mosley, 24, is charged with engaging in organized crime.
