An Orem man has been federally charged after allegedly selling information taken from checks he handled as a convenience store clerk. Justin Ryan Howard, 23, appeared in federal court Monday on one count of unlawful transfer of a means of identification. According to authorities Howard would take names, addresses and account numbers from checks customers used at the Maverik convenience store where he worked. He then allegedly sold the information to undercover agents. Authorities were alerted to the activity by an informant, according to court documents. The case was investigated and is being prosecuted as part of a new Identity Theft Task Force announced by Utah law enforcement agencies earlier this month. Howard is scheduled for another court appearance on Wednesday. If he is convicted the maximum penalty is up to 15 years in federal prison. - The Associated Press
