A traffic stop that led to the recovery of fraudulent credit cards, debit cards and gift cards, and equipment to make counterfeit cards led to a second prison sentence this week.

Jaequan S. Malone, 24, of Columbia, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Augusta to four years in prison. Shikym R. Williams, 25, also of Columbia, was sentenced earlier this year to six years in prison.

According to the U.S. attorney’s office, Malone was stopped for driving 100 mph on Interstate 20 by a Taliaferro County sheriff’s deputy on May 31, 2011. In addition to the fraudulent cards and equipment, there were also 350 stolen credit and debit card numbers found.

After his prison sentence, Ma­lone must pay $7,617 in restitution while on supervised release for three years.

Scumbag lowlife thieves. Too

Scumbag lowlife thieves. Too bad they didn't wreck a 100 mph and save us the trouble of feeding them for years.

I never understood why

I never understood why someone doing something that was not legal would break other laws such as speeding, doing the drugs you are selling, no tail lights, drinking, wearing clothes that would target you and other things that would get you stopped and checked. Stupid is as stupid does. I am with you dichotomy. They should have wrecked. They could have been the scumbags who stole my mothers purse and cards.

In Taliaferro County yet!

A well known speed trap county. Sure way to slip by unnoticed.

Taliaferro County

Yup A-Bomb, those small counties along I-20 make a living off speeders.

These are low life thugs.

These are low life thugs. They are in the same classification as the ring of car thieves that were just broken up in Columbia County. JRC2024, I know how you feel. I had a 1995 Ford Taurus stolen off the side of the interstate, and it has not been confirmed yet, but I would go out on a limb and say this auto theft ring was responsible. Why else would any one steal a broken down 17 year old car?

And you two complaining about

And you two complaining about speed traps, be thankful that someone was caught who not only was speeding, but also had intentions to commit even bigger crimes. It's not like they were pulled over for going a few mph over the speed limit, I think going 100mph could be considered speeding no matter what county they were in. Besides, you never know, the next identity theft victims could have been you. So instead of complaining, you should be thankful,

Who is complaining?

Who is complaining? We were just observing that the perps were doubly stupid for speeding through an area closely monitored by the Po-Po.

I would suggest to the

I would suggest to the reporter that in the future, Columbia would be more specifically defined. We have to ASSUME Columbia means SC due to I-20.

Traffic Stop

This traffic stop and many others as well as road checks clearly shows crime prevention takes place through such intervention.

KSL, it was referring to Columbia, SC and several stolen identity thefts from Columbia, SC to Augusta, GA were solved as well.
