STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 25-year-old former Stratford resident was arrested on multiple charges of identity theft after she was accused of stealing credit card information from several students of Stamford’s Institute of Allied Medical Professions.
Bianca Torres, was extradited Thursday from Jacksonville, N.C., where she was currently living, after Stamford Investigator Richard Pompa investigated the case, according to police.
Torres was a clerical worker at IAMP, which is on Washington Boulevard, and trains students in several medical fields, including ultrasound, radiology and medical imaging.
Police said Torres obtained the credit card information from school files of five students and then made $4,200 in charges.
After the students complained that their credit card information had been compromised, police investigated and discovered the suspect's alleged involvement.
Torres was charged with 17 counts of misdemeanor identity theft, seven counts of criminal attempt at identity theft and third degree larceny. She was held on a $50,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Friday.
