Putnam Woman Accuses Daughter of ID Theft

A Putnam County woman has reported to the sheriff's department that she believes her daughter has stolen her identity, using the victim's social security number and driver's license to get electricity hooked up to a home in Florida. The woman says her daughter got that information because she had helped prepare the woman's federal income tax return. The daughter has also reportedly used the mother's identity to obtain food stamps in the state of Florida. The woman says that Florida authorities are investigating, but needed a report from local officials to help document the crime.
