PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A Maryland man has been sentenced in South Dakota to two years in federal prison for his role in an identity theft scheme.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 38-year-old Victor Sasay was part of a scam that used credit card account information belonging to people across the Midwest to acquire gift cards from multiple stores in the region. The scheme cost banks and credit unions about $60,000.
