MLB star Carlos Peguero’s wife, Maria Peguero, is facing federal wire fraud charges of using a teammate’s wife’s (Sheila Hernandez) debit card to go a $200,000 dollar shopping spree.
ABC NEWS reports:
Maria Jacqueline Peguero, 22, wife of Mariners outfielder Carlos Peguero, was charged earlier this month with three counts of wire fraud, according to federal court documents.
According to the investigating agent, Peguero made 60 online purchases from Saks department store in 2012 using a debit card that was not hers.
Investigators said photos that Peguero posted on Twitter appeared to show the 22-year-old with the same merchandise that had been purchased online.
Peguero was able to get the credit card information after staying with the alleged victim for a few days in May 2012, according to court documents. The alleged victim told investigators that she knew Peguero for two years and considered her a friend. A second alleged victim was described as a co-worker of Peguero’s husband.
