SHREVEPORT, La — A Colorado man has been sentenced in Louisiana for multiple crimes he committed while in both Colorado and Louisiana.
William Lyman Agnew, 55, of Cripple Creek, Colo., fled the town after stealing property and possessions from a residence there in October 2010.
Agnew came to Louisiana in January 2011.
While in Louisiana, he obtained and used four false identities and obtained driver’s licenses, Social Security cards, birth certificates, and other forms of identification. He also attempted to obtain a U.S. Passport using one of his false identities.
The FBI in Monroe, La., discovered Agnew was living and working in Monroe at a local business and arrested Agnew on April 3, 2012. After Agnew’s arrest, many of the items stolen in Colorado were found and seized by federal agents at a storage unit in Monroe that Agnew had rented under one of his false names.
Agnew was sentenced to 51 months in prison with three years supervised release for Identity Fraud, Passport Fraud, Possession of Stolen Goods, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
