MOUNT PLEASANT — A Mount Pleasant woman accused of stealing hundreds of identities while working at the Texas Department of Health and Human Services has been arrested. According to the Longview News-Journal, Selena Patino, 38, was arrested at her home and charged with fraudulent use or possession of identifying information and credit card abuse.
Patino worked at the state agency in Mount Pleasant, where authorities said she stole the identity of clients who came to get vaccinations. Authorities said Patino used the client information and stolen or copied credit cards to apply for new credit cards — which she then maxed out. Titus County sheriff’s deputies said they began looking for Patino after they received multiple complaints from county residents during the first week of 2013.
