CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa woman is accused of using her grandfather’s identity to apply for credit cards that she used to make purchases, including a shopping spree at a Victoria’s Secret store in Cedar Rapids.

U.S. Attorney Kevin Techau says Thursday that 40-year-old Jessica Roloson, of Central City, is charged with wire fraud and identity theft after she obtained credit cards using her grandfather’s personal information, including his Social Security number. She also lives in his former home.

Techau says she used the accounts to make online and in-store purchases, including a Nov. 5 trip to Victoria’s Secret. Roloson allegedly used a card with the name “JLynn Roloson” to buy yoga pants, a pink top and bra.

A phone listing for Roloson was disconnected. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a message.
