An assistant teacher at Nichols Elementary School has been charged with identity theft against another teacher, Biloxi police said.
Police Sgt. Donnie Dobbs said Kimberly Riley, 41, of D’Iberville was arrested Monday evening at her home on Dianne Drive.
Dobbs said a criminal investigation led to allegations Riley defrauded the victim in two ways.
Riley is accused of using the teacher’s personal information to open different credit cards and make assorted purchases until the accounts were closed.
She also allegedly used one of the victim’s credit card numbers to purchase cell phone services.
“Right now I can show about $2,000 but the money involved is estimated at $4,000,” Dobbs said.
“It started back in February. The victim later noticed some unusual charges on her credit reports and she contacted us.”
D’Iberville Police Department assisted in the investigation.
Riley was held at the Harrison County jail on $25,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.
