The head of a Saks Fifth Avenue employee ring that used stolen identities to purchase $430,000 worth of shoes and bags pleaded guilty Wednesday.

Tamara Williams, 38, of Queens, is expected to get four to eight years in prison in exchange to her plea in Manhattan Supreme Court to grand larceny, identity theft and scheme to defraud.

Williams and her crew made 91 purchases at Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship store using pilfered information from about 50 customers between April and August 2014, prosecutors said.

 

“This defendant was the leader of an identity theft ring that stole more than 200 shoes and 80 bags and accessories from Saks Fifth Avenue in the span of approximately four months,” Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. said in a statement.

They bought labels including Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and resold them on the black market, according to prosecutors.
