A 34-year-old Columbus woman is in jail on three counts of identity theft.
Lisa N. Joyner, 34, of Columbus, was arrested Tuesday for Theft, Fraud, and Identity Deception. All are level 6 Felonies.
Joyner is being held without bond in the Jackson County Jail.
On 7/10/17, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department received a report from a rural Seymour resident that someone had stolen her identity, got credit cards with her personal information, and then made charges and purchases both in person at stores in the area and also on-line.
On Tuesday, Reserve Deputy Scott Davis went over documents supplied to the sheriff’s department from the victim and was able to track down a suspect from cell phone numbers used for the delivery of the on-line purchases to a North State Road 11 Seymour address.
A search warrant was obtained that same day and Davis, along with Jackson County Sheriff’s Department officers Jesse Hutchinson and Joe Francis, searched the residence on State Road 11 where they located an item that was purchased on-line and then delivered to that residence.
Also found were documents pertaining to a fraudulent credit card as well as one fraudulent credit card itself.
Davis was assisted in the investigation by Deputy Adam Nicholson.
