A 52-year-old Colorado woman has been accused of using her sister’s personal information at different hospitals in the Centennial State.
On May 2, Rio Rancho Police Department responded to a call of a fraud on the 1100 block of Grace Street NE in Rio Rancho. A woman told an officer she received multiple bills “in high amounts” from her insurance company and the hospitals.
She said the suspect, Mary Trent, of Northglenn, Colo., used her personal information even though the victim had not been to Colorado in years, according to a criminal complaint.
Northglenn is about 10 miles north of Denver.
When RRPD tried to contact Trent, “she did not seem to understand” the questions being asked. She was also “rambling about other things” that the officer could not comprehend, the complaint states.
Trent, who reportedly did not want to provide the officer with her information, said she was planning to file a restraining order on her sister, adding that her sister was using the suspect’s personal information as well, though the complaint did not go into more detail.
Trent was issued a summons and is being accused of identity theft, which is a fourth-degree felony.
An initial appearance has been scheduled for 1 p.m. June 13. If convicted, Trent could face up to a year and a half in prison and pay a $5,000 fine.
