ESSEX, Vt. (AP) - Police in Essex, Vermont, say they believe a woman suspected of using false identification to cash a check is part of an organization called the Felony Lane Gang, an identity theft ring.

Chasity Walton was arrested Monday after police responded to the Peoples United Bank. The 37-year-old Walton was charged with identity theft. It was not immediately known if she had an attorney.

Police found several forms of identification, wigs and checks in Walton’s car. The information was reported stolen from a motor vehicle last week.

Police believe Walton is part of the Felony Lane Gang, which uses identification and financial documents stolen from vehicles to cash checks at various banks, primarily from the far lane of the drive-thru teller. The organization has ties to Florida, Massachusetts, Vermont and Indiana.
