Inmate church says identities were stolen

Des Moines Register, October 19, 2011

A United Methodist congregation made up of inmates at the Iowa Correctional Institute for Women in Mitchellville said an Indianola woman and former inmate used its volunteers’ personal information to steal 40 identities.  Women at the Well United Methodist Church said Shelley Bridges, 37, obtained victims’ personal information, including Social Security numbers and birth dates, while she worked for the organization as an administrative assistant in 2007. Volunteers are required to submit the information to the organization before they can be granted clearance by the prison. Bridges was originally charged with 40 counts of identity theft; those charges have been replaced with a felony count of ongoing criminal conduct.
