An identity theft ring that included bank employees, bank supervisors and a postal worker used counterfeit checks to steal at least $100,000 across South Florida in recent months, police said Friday.

Of 46 people suspected of being in the ring, 24 so far have been arrested, at least one of whom was picked up today, police spokesman Frank Sousa said.

The suspects stole people's personal information, such as payroll and rebate checks, during home and car burglaries. That information was used to create fake checks that were cashed at Wal-Mart, Publix supermarkets, check-cashing stores, banks and other locations in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
