KENNER, Louisiana — Kenner police have arrested a Metairie woman on charges of stealing identity information from more than 15 residents at a retirement home and using it to open credit card and bank accounts.
Lt. Brian McGregor tells NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/1yOZWpb) that authorities had been looking for 23-year-old Kayla Bradley for almost two years. She evaded authorities until Tuesday, when an officer pulled her over on a traffic violation. McGregor says she was booked with identity theft of a victim older than 60. Bond information was not immediately available.
Detectives arrested Bradley's sister, 30-year-old Terez Bradley, on March 21, 2013, as part of the same investigation. She pleaded guilty to three counts of identity theft and was sentenced to three years of probation.
The Bradley sisters obtained personal information while Kayla Bradley worked at an Emeritus retirement home from December 2012 and April 2013. Police caught onto the scam when they noticed that several residents were reporting incidents of identity theft.
