A South Carolina woman has been sentenced to three years in prison for a mail theft conspiracy.

The U.S. Justice Department said in a news release Wednesday that 48-year-old Casey A. Raines of Greenville was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court to the prison term, f0llowed by three years of supervised release.

Raines was also ordered to pay nearly $7,600 in restitution.

Evidence suggested Raines and others stole mail in Greenville County to find bank account information they used to create counterfeit checks. The checks were used to obtain money for methamphetamine.

Prosecutors say Raines opened bank accounts to deposit stolen and counterfeit checks. Raines and others split the proceeds.

Thirty-eight-year-old Carly L. Wright was named as a co-conspirator and was previously sentenced to 51 months in prison.
