LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Lexington police say a woman has been arrested on charges that she allegedly used stolen identities to set up fake bank accounts.

According to media outlets, police said in a news release that Dimitra McKissic is charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, theft by deception, identity theft and trafficking.

Police say at the time of her arrest last week, McKissic was found with personal information belonging to more than 50 people, including debit cards, birth records and tax documents.

Police said McKissic allegedly used Kentucky identification cards with her photo and the names and information of two other people to open fraudulent checking accounts.

McKissic was taken to the Fayette County Detention Center. It wasn’t immediately known whether she has an attorney to comment on the charges.
