Wife of Mariners player facing federal charges

Seattle • The wife of Seattle Mariners outfielder Carlos Peguero is accused of making $180,000 in unauthorized purchases with another person's debit card.

Federal court documents show that Maria Jacqueline Peguero was charged earlier this month with three counts of wire fraud. An agent with the U.S. Secret Service says Peguero made 60 unauthorized purchases in 2012 from the upscale retailer Saks Fifth Avenue.

Peguero was arrested but is now free on bond. Her court-appointed attorney did not return a call seeking comment Saturday.

The court documents do not name the two victims in the case but say one of them is a co-worker of Carlos Peguero. Peguero has been with the Mariners organization for several years, playing most of this past year with the team's Triple-A affiliate in Tacoma.
