Sheriff's Department Investigates Identity Theft
The Putnam County sheriff's department is investigating a case of identity theft. The owner of a local roofing business reports that when he got his mail last Friday, he noticed a bill for more than 25-hundred dollars that he supposedly owed for a job in Memphis. But he told authorities that he isn't doing any work in Memphis and didn't authorize any charges. The victim believes a former employee may be responsible. He says other suppliers that he works with contacted him before agreeing to any charges, and he told them that only he or his son has that authorization.
