FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A Fairbanks grand jury has indicted a former North Pole police officer on identity theft charges.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://bit.ly/1wgNyM2) reports 33-year-old Ryan D. Webb is charged with four felonies, including two counts of criminal impersonation and one each of theft and fraudulent use of an access device.

Prosecutors say Webb used another man’s personal information to obtain a credit card.

Webb joined the North Pole Police Department in February 2009.

He was fired in February 2011. Police would not release the reason for the termination, citing confidentiality requirements.

Officer Chad Rathbun says the identity theft case occurred in January 2013, nearly two years after Webb left the department.

Police say the victim of the identity theft was Webb’s former roommate.
