A police inquiry from Texas has revealed that a woman living in Austin was allegedly using another’s identity to maintain employment at Austin Packaging Company.
A Texas woman told her local authorities that someone stole her identity and was using it at Austin Packaging Company, according to the complaint. A detective discovered who the alleged identity thief is — Carmen Lazaro-Cacari, 25 — and arrested her at her home at the 600 block of North Main Street in Austin on July 27. The complaint adds Lazaro-Cacari voluntarily gave the detective her documents, which included the victim’s birth certificate and social security card. Lazaro-Cacari allegedly used the documents to get a Minnesota ID.
The detective also found an EBT card for food assistance, medical documents from Mower County Human Services revealing her true identity, a Mexico Matricula card and Mexico birth certificate.
Lazaro-Cacari is held in the Mower County jail on $50,000 bail and is charged with felony forgery for false identification along with misdemeanor identity theft. Her next court appearance is Aug. 9.
