Felony ID Theft Charge for 28-Year-Old Woman


Police on Sunday arrested a 28-year-old Philadelphia woman by warrant and charged her with second-degree identity theft, a felony offense.

At about 11 a.m. on April 16, officers took custody of the woman at Atlantic County Jail in Mays Landing, N.J. on an active arrest warrant that resulted from an investigation following an incident reported to authorities Jan. 20, according to a police report.

At police headquarters, she additionally was charged with third-degree forgery and sixth-degree larceny, the report said. According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, she additionally has been charged with attempt to commit third-degree larceny.

It’s unclear what the woman is accused of doing, how she stole someone’s identity, how old the victim is or how much money was taken. Under state law, a person is guilty of second-degree identity theft if “the value of the money, credit, goods, services or property obtained exceeds five thousand dollars,” or if the victim “is sixty years of age or older,” among other reasons.

The woman was held on $100,000 bond and scheduled to appear Monday in state Superior Court. According to court records, bond has been reduced to $25,000. The woman has not yet pleaded and continues to be held in custody, with her next court appearance scheduled for June 14, according to court records.
