Babalola Falemi, AKA Sauce Kid and Sinzu was sentenced to two years in federal prison after stealing $15,388 during a visit last summer to the Treasure Valley.
The rapper is jailed for falsely obtaining stolen bank card numbers and identifying information for their owners.
The credit card theft took place at Boise ATMs owned by Idaho Central Credit Union and at Albertsons stores in Meridian, court documents alleged.
According to report, Falemi was arrested with a card encoding device and more than $6,000 in cash at the Boise Airport as he was about to board a flight.
Initially, Sauce kid was charged with a conspiracy to commit bank fraud in addition to eight counts each of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft, and possession of 15 or more fraudulent bank cards.
He pleaded guilty to one of the counts of aggravated identity theft.
In exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors dismissed the other counts. Senior U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge also placed him on one year of supervised release after his prison term.
