    "Clyde" and "Bonnie" won't be jet setting again anytime soon as both serve time in federal prisons.

    "Clyde" will join "Bonnie" in the big house.  Philly's most infamous and arguably sexiest criminals of late were nicknamed the Bonnie and Clyde of ID Theft.  Friday, "Clyde” came face-to-face with justice.
    "Clyde" is 25-year-old Edward Anderton. He got sentenced to four years in prison at federal court in Philadelphia, Pa and he must pay $101,033 in restitution as soon as he gets out of prison.
    Anderton and his 23-year-old former girlfriend, Jocelyn Kirsch, defrauded neighbors of more than $100,000, according to authorities.

    Anderton and co-defendant Jocelyn Kirsch stole identity information, credit cards and credit card account info from numerous victims, including friends, co-workers, neighbors, fellow students, bar patrons and others, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

    The duo used computer spy ware, fake IDs and other technologies to carry out their elaborate crime spree for about a year starting in November 2006.

    The couple used the money they swindled for lavish vacations, clothes and nights out on the town.
