Suspected identity thieves in Abilene arrested

At least two individuals in Abilene are facing first degree aggravated identity theft charges after police suspected them of possessing personal information belonging to several people, news sources reported on November 2nd.

Reports said Abilene residents Herome Henderson, 49, and Jessie Houston, 30, were arrested for possessing the personal information of 50 people. Police reportedly apprehended the two suspects on La Salle Drive and North 10th Street.

Though police are still investigating the extent of the two individuals’ operation, authorities have stated that these arrests have nothing to do with the First Financial Bank ATM incident in which hundreds of consumers had money stolen from their accounts after their personal information had been stolen.
