Trio Arrested for Extensive Identity Theft Operation and Drug Possession

Monroe County, FL - Three individuals are facing criminal charges after law enforcement discovered a trove of stolen or forged identity documents in a South Florida motel room.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, deputies executed a search warrant at the Sunset Cove Beach Resort, located on Overseas Highway, after receiving a call for assistance from a bail bondsman on Thursday.

Inside the motel room, authorities discovered burglary tools, forged checks, over 100 credit cards unrelated to the suspects, more than 20 stolen or forged identification cards from various states and countries, numerous items of mail not belonging to any of the suspects, a scanner used for creating illegal credit cards, and a stash of illicit substances including fentanyl, marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms, and drug paraphernalia.

Deputies arrested 27-year-old Jacob Michael Majewski, 30-year-old Michael George Harvey, and 42-year-old Katie Campbell.

Authorities believe the trio possessed items indicative of involvement in a large-scale criminal enterprise.

Each of the suspects is facing 361 criminal charges, including 125 counts of criminal use of personal identification information, 100 counts of trafficking in or possessing counterfeit credit cards, and 100 counts of obtaining credit cards through fraudulent means.

Adam Linhardt, the sheriff's office spokesperson, states the investigation is ongoing to determine whether any of the recovered identification cards or credit cards belong to residents of Monroe County.

Campbell and Majewski have been booked into jail, while Harvey was transported to Mariners' Hospital in Tavernier due to symptoms of drug consumption and dehydration.
