A Milford woman turned herself in on a warrant Saturday after allegedly using her daughter's name to open up a Capital One credit card account.
Diane Dewar, 43, of Viscount Drive was charged with third-degree identity theft, making a false statement, receiving goods and services illegally, illegal use of a credit card and fourth-degree larceny. She was released on a promise to appear in court on Aug. 28.
The victim, a Monroe woman, told police she had run a credit check on herself and learned that a Capital One credit card had been opened in her name in November of 2010, though she had never applied for it, according to police.
She contacted Capital One and was told the card had a $1,268 balance, police said. She recognized the Milford billing address as her mother's. The ensuing police investigation determined that Dewar had opened the account, according to the report.
