Federal court records say a member of an alleged identity theft ring known as the "Felony Lane Gang" is scheduled to plead guilty to conspiracy.

A 29-count indictment said the group broke into cars in south Mississippi beginning in 2007 to steal purses. They used the identities in the purses to cash stolen checks.

The group's name is apparently related to what they allegedly called the "felony lane," the furthest lane from the teller in a bank drive-through, which they used when cashing checks.

Court records said Russell Brown is scheduled to plead guilty Jan. 6 in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.

Five others have been sentenced to terms ranging from 10 months to more than four years.
