A Towson man was sentenced to more than six years in federal prison for two separate bank fraud and identity schemes Friday.

Jerry Anderson, 31, was sentenced to 76 months in prison, followed by six years of supervised release for two separate bank fraud and aggravated identity theft schemes in which Anderson and others use counterfeit cards to make fraudulent purchases. 

Anderson, with the help of others, used stolen cards and other personal information of customers of victim financial institutions to purchase items, such as Apple iPhones at retail locations in Maryland and elsewhere.

Anderson committed fraud for a second time while awaiting sentencing on the first scheme charge. 

The operation, which lasted from about February to October 2014, robbed 250 victims of $419,807.14.
