A Montgomery County couple was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft April 11, stemming from an indictment returned by a federal grand jury. 

Jonathan Henry, 26 of Bethesda, Md., and Dominique Davis, 27 of Germantown, Md., allegedly stole the personal identities of at least 11 people. The pair created fake driver's licenses, then used them to apply for credit cards and cellphone accounts in the victims' names. They then wracked up more than $45,000 in credit card charges across North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. 

Henry and Davis face maximum 20-year sentences on the wire fraud charges. Henry is also charged with 11 counts of aggravated identity theft, for which he faces mandatory consecutive sentences of two years per count. Davis is currently being held in Montgomery County on unrelated charges.
