counterfeit debit and credit cards at various Walgreens pharmacies across northern Illinois. Moore was subsequently indicted by a grand jury on one count of conspiracy to use and possess counterfeit or unauthorized access devices and one count of possession of at least 15 unauthorized access devices.

We affirm Moore's sentence, but vacate the imposition of a term of supervised release, and remand this case for further proceedings.

The others were also arrested after the officers...
