CALAIS — A 60-year-old woman from Florida was cited for identity theft and grand larceny following an incident in Calais last month.

On August 23, authorities say they were notified of a fraud that occurred on August 10 and 11.

Police allege that Jocelyn Severson, of Wesley Chapel, FL, gained access to the victim’s business email account and requested a payment from the owner’s accountant to herself in the amount of $16,000.

Jean Lacroix’s accountant, thinking the request was from Jean, made the payment to Severson.

Severson was issued a citation to appear in court at a later date to answer the charges.
