Public Housing Manager Charged with Identity Theft
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The manager of a St. Louis public housing complex has been indicted on two felony charges for allegedly conspiring to steal Social Security numbers and other personal information from prospective tenants.
Federal prosecutors say 42-year-old Marsha Harrington worked with co-defendants Calvin Shaw and Larry Corner to use the stolen information to file false tax returns. Harrington is manager of the Clinton-Peabody housing complex. She allegedly would split the refund checks with Shaw and Corner when they provided her with stolen information.
Each was indicted on April 23 on one felony count of conspiracy to commit identity theft and one felony count of identity theft. Harrington and Shaw were arrested on Wednesday. Corner was already in federal custody.
