TAMPA, Florida — A Tampa woman is heading to prison after being found guilty of taking part in a credit card ring led by her boyfriend.

On Tuesday, a judge sentenced 25-year-old Danay Crespo-Rodriguez to seven years in federal prison.

Authorities say Crespo-Rodriguez and her boyfriend put key loggers on credit card terminals at some stores in Tampa's International Plaza.

The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/TOsvSi ) reports authorities recovered some 4,000 stolen credit card numbers and estimate the loss at more than $650,000.

She pleaded guilty in October and was released on bail. Officials say she absconded the next month and was recaptured after being arrested on shoplifting and assault charges at a Tampa store.

Officials say others involved in the ring have pleaded guilty or were convicted. One remains a fugitive.
