20-year-old woman steals relative's identity, $7,000

A 20-year-old Arcade woman stole a relative's identity and used it to take out more than $7,000 from a checking account, Wyoming County sheriff's deputies said Sunday.

Christine M. Barr was arrested Thursday after police investigated fraudulent charges on a family member's checking account. They found that Barr had taken the checking account information, and had been putting money onto a credit card for cash withdrawals since the middle of January.

Barr was charged with first-degree identity theft, third-degree grand larceny, third-degree unlawful possession of personal identification and second-degree criminal impersonation. She was arraigned in Town of Arcade Court and sent to county jail.
