Hospital Workers Targeted in Identity Theft

The Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Two people were arrested Tuesday for allegedly stealing the identities of workers at Arkansas Childrens Hospital, and a third suspect was being sought.

Police investigated for nearly a year before arresting Cheryl Raynor, 30, and Theresa Glason Colvin, 26, on charges related to identity theft.

Little Rock police Detective Tommy Hudson said he was first contacted in October 2001 regarding the case. He said several pharmacists at the hospital had learned that their identities had been assumed by several different people in the city.

The investigation led to a worker in the human resources department at the hospital.

"They would take that personal information and create fake identification cards with the victims names but have the suspects pictures on the identification cards," Hudson said.

Police identified the third suspect as Victoria Brown.

Hudson said the theft involved $10,000 he said he can prove now, and possibly more than $100,000.

Hudson said the victims learned of the theft after they ran credit checks on themselves.
