Magalia woman may have stolen identities from at least 10 elderly victims
A nine-month investigation into the identity theft of an 82-year-old woman led to the arrest of her caregiver and the seizure of drugs, guns and cash, according to a press release from the Chico Police Department.
Police began investigating Connie Ogle, 37, of Magalia, after a man reported several credit cards had been opened in his mother’s name. Detectives found evidence Ogle, a convicted felon, may have stolen the identities of at least 10 victims in Butte, Napa and Nevada counties.
Search warrants yielded evidence of identity theft, plus 85 pounds of processed marijuana, $27,000 in cash and multiple guns. Ogle (pictured) was arrested in Lake County and booked into Butte County Jail.
