Last two Felony Lane Gang members plead guilty in NKY bank fraud scheme The Enquirer

Six people, who authorities say were members of a nationwide crime syndicate, have all been convicted in a scheme to fraudulently withdraw money from banks in Northern Kentucky.

John Sapienza, 60, and Tyshawn Wilson, 29, pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Covington to aiding and abetting attempted bank fraud and aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft, court records show. 

The pair are now the last awaiting sentencing among the six members of the Felony Lane Gang arrested by Fort Thomas police in January on charges related to theft, fraud and participating in organized crime. 

The other four members were convicted earlier this year of attempted theft charges in Campbell County Circuit Court and sentenced to jail time. Those men are Welbyn Reyes, 28, Justin Huerfano, 24, Ahmed Evans, 30, and Daniel Cruz, 26.
