A Kemper County grand jury returned the indictments of 41-year-old Timothy Taylor and 35-year-old Don Darrell Price.
Both are charged with identity theft and tax fraud. The charges stem from an undercover sting in January 2010. That's when the men allegedly tried to file almost 500 fake W-2 forms at a tax service in DeKalb.
It's possible the two men could face additional charges. DeKalb police say they were only able to charge the men with one count each of identity theft and tax fraud.
¶"That's the way that they wanted to handle it," said DeKalb Asst. Police Chief Charles Barrett of federal law enforcement. "So, that's the way we handled it. Of course, we did the initial arrests and everything. I don't know what the federal is going to do. They won't advise us. That's strictly hush-hush on that, but that's the major charges we are charging them with."
Taylor and Price are both free on bond. Their cases are set to go to trial in DeKalb July 28.
