FELONY CHARGES FILED FOR ALLEGED IDENTITY THEFT OR ATTEMPT

A Marshall woman is facing a couple of felony charges for allegedly opening a fraudulent account in another person’s name nearly four years ago.

According to a probable-cause statement, a man reported to authorities he received a call from a PayPal representative due to the man failing to make a payment on his PayPal credit account. The man told the representative he did not have a credit line through PayPal. The man said the PayPal representative told him the account was opened in November 2016. The PayPal representative advised the man there was a total of $4,952 charged to the account, all of which the man claimed no knowledge of incurring.

It is alleged that Jeanie Marie Gabrielson opened the account without permission.

A Criminal Summons has been issued, and Gabrielson has been charged with a Class D Felony for Identity Theft or Attempt and a Class E Felony for Fraudulent Use of a Credit or Debit Device.

Gabrielson is scheduled to be arraigned at 10 a.m. on July 29 at Saline County Circuit Court.
