Former New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Irving Fryar and his mother were indicted on conspiracy charges in New Jersey on Wednesday.

Former New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Irving Fryar and his mother were indicted on conspiracy charges in New Jersey on Wednesday.

According to Christopher Baxter of the Newark Star-Ledger, Fryar, 51, and Allene McGhee, 72, were charged with stealing more than $690,000 "by deceiving banks into granting them several home equity loans." 

The loans, five in all, were obtained in a six-day period four years ago. The New Jersey Attorney General's office said McGhee's home was used as a collateral in the transactions, per Baxter. 

A CBS Philly report dated Oct. 16 says the case investigation was done by the Division of Criminal Justice Financial and Computer Crimes Bureau. 

The pair was accused of falsifying information in these applications, including their claim that McGhee earned a substantial salary as an event coordinator of the New Jerusalem House of God, which was founded by Fryar. He is also a pastor in that church.  

Fryar and McGhee also did not inform the other banks about the other loans they obtained. Only a few payments were made on four loans before they were written off. 

Acting state Attorney General John Hoffman said it was "an elaborate criminal scheme." 

"This is not a case in which Mr. Fryar and his mother simply omitted or misstated information on loan applications. This indictment alleges that they engaged in an elaborate criminal scheme that was designed to defraud these banks of hundreds of thousands of dollars." 

At the moment, it still remains unclear whether Fryar and McGhee have lawyers to represent them, per the Associated Press. 

Fryar played in the NFL from 1984-2000 for the Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Eagles and Washington Redskins. He was an elite receiver, ranking 15th all-time in receiving yards with 12,785 and 18th all-time in receptions with 851.
