CANDOR, N.Y.—A 42-year-old Candor woman has been arrested on charges she used the identities of two unsuspecting victims to create utility and credit card accounts.

There weren’t many details available in the New York State Police’s press release regarding the arrest, but Angela Kemp was charged with two counts of first-degree identity theft, a felony.

Police said they were notified in January that “thousands of dollars were charged in two victims’ names to several utility accounts and credit card companies.” Police allege that, after an investigation, it was found that Kemp “used the victim’s personal information without their knowledge to open up numerous accounts in their names.”

Kemp was arraigned and will appear in the Lansing Town Court at a later date. The court is closed until Thursday, according to its voicemail, meaning more details will likely have to wait until at least then.
