A's “Longtime friend” who stole from Coco Crisp convicted of fraud and identity theft

Quote:
Via the Associated Press comes this odd story about Coco Crisp and how friends become former friends:

A longtime friend of Coco Crisp was convicted Thursday of 14 counts of fraud and identity theft for running up about $30,000 on the Oakland Athletics outfielder’s credit card without his permission. … Prosecutors said Marcus Andrews, who grew up with Crisp in Southern California, began using the outfielder’s American Express card without his knowledge in November 2010.

According to police Marcus Andrews charged about $25,000 worth of gift cards under Crisp’s name and now faces a minimum of two years and a maximum of 20 years in prison. But wait, there’s more:

It wasn’t until Crisp’s wife noticed the purchase of a shotgun and a 9mm handgun on their statement did the couple realize someone was fraudulently using their credit card, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas Pilgrim.” Marcus Andrews had a passion for guns,” Pilgrim said.

Sure, why wouldn’t he?
