Oxnard couple arrested in identity theft case

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) – Oxnard police have arrested a married couple after investigating them in connection with a case of identity theft.

The Ventura County Star reports (http://bit.ly/1d30gZv ) that police say the couple, arrested Thursday, used the false identity to hide Guillermo Ezequiel Martin’s sex offender status.

Police say his wife used her job as human resources director to get Martin a job. He then used the stolen identity for six months while concealing his offender status.

Police say he also used a business account to buy $1,846 worth of goods for personal use.

The pair faces charges of conspiracy, identity theft, grand theft, false impersonation and being a sex offender failing to provide information.
