GRETNA, La. (AP) - A radio station employee is in custody, accused of stealing the personal information of listeners who won prizes to open cable accounts and credit cards.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (https://bit.ly/1YOzCGX ) 35-year-old Bryan Bienemy, of Gretna, was booked Wednesday into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center with three counts of felony identity theft and 19 counts of misdemeanor identity theft.

Gretna Police Deputy Chief Anthony Christiana didn’t name the station for which Bienemy worked. But his responsibilities included destroying receipts and copies of identification submitted by prizewinners. Instead, an arrest report alleges Bienemy kept the information to open the cable accounts.

Christiana says investigators have identified 20 victims in the case.

Authorities say Bienemy admitted opening the cable accounts but denied the credit card allegations. Bond was set at $29,100.
