The US District Court for the Northern District of Georgia grand jury has indicted two moving company scammers on Possession of Stolen Property, Transportation of Stolen Property, and Conspiracy charges.
It is alleged that Tasheen Raphael Pickett and Shedrick Giles acted as unlicensed movers under the name of J and P Moving, Inc. and stole innocent victims household belongings and other personal items.
