According to court documents, Markis J. Dickerson, 21, and Christopher D.

Dickerson and Boone allegedly recruited people to give up access to their debit cards and PIN numbers in exchange for money.

Both men also carried guns while making the deposits and withdrawals.

Boone, a convicted felon, is prohibited from carrying a firearm.
