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.
